    Deer calls

  • #2
    My stand set up is usually about 20 yards where I expect the deer to travel,I scent soak an arrow and send it to that spot. At times this doesn't, work exactly as planned,you can peel off bark from the tree to imitate a buck rubbing his antlers,curiosity is a killer,if he is in close but not close enough a low pig like bleat helps seal the deal.I was on the ground once and jumped a young buck upwind from me.He ran a short way and snorted,knowing I wasn't, smelled I snorted back.So he starts to circle ,with only a few shrubs between us,I had my arrow set,and I raked the shrubs like a deer.He stepped clear ,turned his shoulder ,end of story. This is what I,,m looking for,little secrets you have developed. Thx never to old to learn a new trick or two.6P

      Good subject and question 6P. I don't use calls or scents. But my hunting is primarily with firearms and I shoot within seconds of spotting the animal

        I have on a couple of occasions called deer back into bow range just by clicking my wooden arrow against the side of my recurve to give a sound of antler tips coming together. That can be done with a minimum of movement and both occasions it was possible for good arrow placement and venison steaks !

            I use a doe can. It works pretty well. I had been trying a buck roar for a while, but then I realized I had been using it wrong.
