I'd say I like to use the antlers the best. You can make them crash loud and they deer can hear it better if they are farther away. Also better on windy days.I use all the calls, but my favorite would have to be the antlers.

without a doubt, a grunt tube that i can change to doe bleat. Mine is from M.A.D. that has the snort wheeze tube also. If I see a lonebuck during seeking or chasing phase of the I have 100 percent confidence that I can call that buck in.

I have tried to use the can call several times with no luck. I have had bucks come in with a grunt tube.

I use them all together. I try and sound like a couple bucks fighting over several does, seems to work better than just one call. If you have a buddy with you have him be one buck and doe, and you another buck and doe.

The can has worked well for me. Lots of times I'll use it just after I get in the stand in the afternoon (about 3 PMish).Many times when I have done that a doe or 2 will come to check out what's going on and just hang out, mabey bed down under my stand or nearby. Usually by that time of the year, the does don't get to hang arround toolong without at least a buck or 2 comming by to check them out. Has worked for me anyway.

personally, i have had no luck at all with any of the calls. i have tried rattling, grunting, bleating, and the can. I voted grunt because i used it to stop a deer one time. that was it

I too also use all the calls together, and they have all worked and brought in bucks for me every year.
