I would use the same calling tactics now as you would early bow season-minimal. A soft grunt here or there or some light antler sparring might work for you. Me personally, i would stay away from agressive rut type calling ( like the buck roar/growl) now in the late season. If you notice some late rut activity or a particular buck still acting agressive than call more aggressive. As for blind calling this time of year i would either keep it soft or none at all. Thats just my oppinion. Im not a big fan of lures so maybe someone else can help you with that.

Be VERY cautious using calls this late in the season. Most likely, all you'll really do is give a heavily hunted late season whitetail a reason to circle downwind and bust you. Just remember how much hunting presures these deer have been through up to this point. I promise you, the list of trophy bucks called in during the late season is a short one indeed! My best strategy for late calling wold be to ONLY call to deer you can see and thus read their body language. Be careful and good luck
