I added an important part to the story that I had forgotten to put in. If you reread the story I think you will find it interesting.

So what brand/type of grunt tube? I'm thinking about getting one of these.

pluckit,

Congrats on taking a very nice buck with your ML! I'm sure your friend has mixed emotions, happy for you and at the same time bummed that he missed... Been there!

The deer we hunt do not seem too receptive to vocal calls. Neither rattling nor grunting. They tell me it's due to the buck to doe ratio.

That being said, the buck I killed in VA this year came to a grunt. But I must be honest, the success rate is so low that I normally grunt and rattle just to give me something to do. Not because I think it's going to call anything in.

I never rattle. It can scare off the younger bucks and I am out there to enjoy the thrill of the hunt and fill the freezer. I don't want to lesson my chances of doing the second of the two main reasons I go hunting.

I had a grunt tube that I tried many times in the woods. I saw a buck out browsing one afternoon too far out. I grunted and watched him through the binoculars and he never once responded. He did look my way, but then went back to what he was doing. I did have a young buck respond to the same tube but never a nice one like yours.
