Default The "growl"

I have been watching videos all day.I find it very funny that coincidentally The only bucks that do "growl" are on the Drury vids.

Do you mean to tell me that some hunting companies may use somewhat misleading tactics to sell their product? I was under the impression that 'last years' equipment is always obsolete.

Yeah and the bucks just started doing it a couple of years ago. Maybe they didn't know the does liked it when they roared before.

Yeah its kind of like that corny pick up line you never want to try, but when you did and it worked everyone uses it.

if anyone does any video editing you can make some wiered noises by messing with the sound

Do you mean the growl itself, or the fervor and hype of the "growl/roar" calls this past season? If you mean the later, I completely agree! I expected a windfall of stories of huge bucks taken with this call - much like the can in the past.

Dury and Primos are still laughing themselves silly to the bank over it.

I can ONLY speak to what I hear the deer in MY area doing.

That being said.....I've never heard a deer re-ceate the sounds the can makes, either (though I'm not saying they don't make them).

MY approach is this......the lessnoise I make, while hunting, the less likely I am to tip off the animals I'm hunting as to my location.

It's working, so far.

I agree with GMMAT... the deer are more likely to duplicate the sounds that come out of MY can and not Primos.LOL I have however heard fawns bleat and does when being chased etc. But the growl.... NOPE. Been doing this deer stuff for 49 years and not one GROWL.
