Default Do I know how to use a deer call?

last night, we went spotlighting(legal), saw a doe and 3 fawns about 90 yards out in a field, so we shut the car off and i called on my deer call, I called her in to about 15 to 20 feet of the car with the spotlight on her the whole time, cool huh.

So can someone name a good deercall for me? I have no idea what to look for, so any input is helpful.

I personally like the bow grunter from away hunting. It's hands free, you inhale instead of exhaleing so it dosn't freeze up when it's cold.

Eric, That sounds like it was a pretty cool experience. That gives a whole new meaning to deer caught in a spotlight.

Depends on what calls you want to do or use. Personally my calling is mostly grunts and if I want a bawl, bleat or snort I just replicate with my mouth, so I choose a good toned grunt vs the all in ones.

So for the all in ones (Doe, Fawn, Bucks) the True Talker is a very good suggestion.

However if you just want a grunt I really like the EZ Grunter by knight n hale. The reason I like it is small, does not freeze, exhale/inhale blow methods and great tone.

Funny, mine has frozen up a few times. Do you use it with or without the extended tube? Using it with the tube gives it a totally different tone (and to my ears, more realistic). Without the tube it sounds flat and doesn't seem like the sound would carry nearly as far. I'm not sure how much it really matters though.

(BTW, are you Skeeter from the CFD? Just curious.)

mistah, I haven't had it freeze but I also do use it inhaling a lot as well, so maybe that helps eliminate the spit up effect. I agree tone with the ext'd tube vs without is better.

Try keeping it in your coat if you just blow or exhale, that worked with other grunts I had previous!

Nope not the same gent.

Another vote for the Away Bowgrunter ,
I don't leave home without it .
