Default how do you use your deer call?

i find that more bucks/deer will respond to a doe bleat.

i do it different than most other ppl, they tell you to blow a few times, then wait for 1/2 hour or something like that.
BUT I blow my call sometimes literally until a deer comes. I get frustrated and just start blowing sometimes up to 5 minutes straight, sometimes more. and guess what,,,,,,,, IT WORKS!! i called in 2 little six pointers and 1 nice 11-13 pointer, just blowing the deer call like crazy until i heard em coming. its cool, they say if you blow a call too much itll scare the deer, but i think it just makes them more curious as to why that doe wont shut up and they come to see whats up.,,,,,, one of these days while you are hunting, just try it a few times, it works i swear.

Being I hunt deep areas and very close to the bucks bedroom I refrain from using blind calling, except when rattling. Calling will allow animals to pinpoint your location and in deep transition areas they will often be able to easily circle your location without being seen. Since I am after mature bucks in these areas I only call when required, the rest of the time I am only their for the view.

That's true. I have used a grunt before. I lost the damn thing, but the one time I used it, it worked like a charm. It was starting to get late and I saw a nice 8 pt step out and start making his way out in front. There was a huge brush pile and I was afraid to lose him behind it and not get a shot before my legal shooting time was up. I grunted and he truned and looked around a bit, pawed at the ground and starting wandering toward me. Another buck came out and started coming at me to. Well, I got a better look and decided although nice, he was a wee bit small. I had him on video from a couple weeks before and it was some great footage. Once I recognized him, I set the gun down and jut grunted at him a little. Once he figured out where I was, he stared at me a little and I shifted my leg in the tripod and bumped something and both of them bolted. But it drew him in.

Every year we rattle up a few. The first I got last year, I rattled up. HE was going at it with someone else(That's cool to hear two bucks getting it on!!) and as soon as I popped the horns together, he came running, much to his detriment. I should have let him walk, but I was so pleased with my rattling, I took him. He was 4 1/2 and had a modest rack, 8 points.

We usually get in the jeep and drive out to a hill somewhere and rattle with one man on the shooter's seat, one rattlin and another glassing. We'll hit it a few times and wait and then move on to the next spot. Almost always see plenty that way, but seldom a big one.

I do like skeeter.........I try to stay clear of calls and I stay clear of scents. I do rattle if I feel conditions are right.........

Most of my time is spent staring at the trees
