Default How do you get a walking buck to stop?

One of my buddies told me that when he was at full draw and trying to get the buck to stop he made a bleet sound and the buck stopped cold in his tracks so he could get a shot. I tried this yesterday and he wasn't stopping for me. Wouldn't this alert the deer anyway? What does everyone else do?

just give a little whistle or if you cant do that you can kinda of say murp by like try to accent more on the mu part of the word than the rp.

by the way is this for gun hunting cuz u can shoot a deer walking with a shotgun.

Bowhunting. Yeah, if I had a gun yesterday he would be at the taxidermist. I tried doing the whistle and eerp sound and it didn't work. And the wind was blowing 3mph so that wasn't an issue either.

a simple whistle or "heh" sound will almost always stop them, I used this when I was bowhunting this year, I learned the hard way though. Last year I had a buck come out at about 60 yards during gun season, I shot and apparently missed, he went into the woods, then came out about 5 minutes later leisurely trotting across the field behind a doe, he was about 80 yds out and I didn't realize I could whistle at him... afterall, it was only my first year of hunting! This year, I had a doe walking by me at a steady pace with my bow in hand, and drawn back, she wasn't stopping... so I whistled and she stopped perfectly in the only opening I had for a shot. Unfortunately, I never found her after tracking for 2 hours, but I had a decent shot on her and if I had not have whistled, she would not have stopped.

Shane had to do this with his deer this year too, she was moving quickly across the field and he had a pretty hefty pinch of Skoal in his mouth and couldn't get a whistle out until it was almost too late... LOL

I bought a true talker grunt call and called two deer, buck and doe from a hundred yards away.
When the buck got broad side to me walking i just grunted with my voice and he stopped and i got the shot.

Do it louder. Sometimes it doesn't work if you don't do it loud enough. Do it quiet, if it doesn't work do it louder till the deer stops.
