Default faw distress call

so i bought a fawn in distress call last year before the seaon. I used it several times and it brought a doe in once that was about 60 yards away when i bgan calling. I was just wonderin...what and how is the proper way to actually use this call? do you call with it blindly when u dont see anythin? how often? and until how far into the season can u use it with sucess?...like i said i used it often last season in the early season and i used it my first time out this yr and it was only semi-effective once. Im curious because ive heard that it really brings the does in quickly and effectively. Thanks for your input.
(BTW it is the knight and hale fawn distress call)

Default RE: faw distress call

I've been using this type of Call for as long as I've been hunting. Down here in Florida, it works well all year long. I use it blindly when I don't see any deer. I generally call for 15-30 seconds...loudly and desperately. Put as much emotion into the call as possible. Sounds funny, but pretend that you're a little fawn that's lost and wants its mommie. After each sequence, I wait...bow in hand. Sometimes, does come running in with a few minutes...sometimes they don't. But it works more times than not. These Calls can even lure in young bucks. During the rut, you may bring in a mature buck if he follows the does in to your calling. Either way, you should see something after a while. If not, do another sequence every 15-20 minutes. The louder and more desperate the better.

Good Luck!
