Default calling question

With the rut fast approaching, I was wondering what kind of calls you guys use? Do you use doe bleats or buck grunts? I'm gonna try my hand with some calls next weekend (for the first time)when I get out and any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I've only used one call during the rut. I used the same call twice.
First time I used the Primoscan..20 minutes later a buck came. He died. Then last year I went to Missouri. I used the Primos can during th eheat of the rut....10 minutes later a doe and 3 bucks came by. The eight point died too.When you use your can ..blow into it instead of turning it upside down. Sounds very realistic. However; I 've used it this month with no success. I'm thinking teh rut might be the best time ot use it.But who knows I'mstill a rookie myself.

God bless,
C7

I had a nice buck come to my rattle bag tonight within 5 minutes. He was going to circle downwind and out of range so even though he was in sight (40 yards or so) i decided to gently hit the bag again and gave one short quiet grunt and he turned my way. I got off a nice broadside shot at about 25 yards but cliped a tiny twig and ended up killing a tree instead of the buck. Round one..deer 1, hunter 0, to be continued.
