here's what I'm using

Primos "The GREAT BIG Can" long range estrus bleats for all phases of the rut

I do not hunt in a tree stand because I feel like I want the deer to hear the call coming from their level, not up in a tree.

I usually make ONE SINGLE bleat after I get on stand and everything is quiet. If there is no wind it seems to work best. If I haven't heard anything for about a hour then I'll do it again. Sometimes it works like a charm, it just seems to matter if there is a buck in hearing distance.

Hope this helps a little

I use the "Original Primos Bleat Can"

I usually wait til I see deer before I use it, but I occasionally will call 2 to 3 times with short pauses inbetween, then I'll rattle a hard sequence and repeat after the next 30 minutes. This works best before the peak of the rut here in Ohio, otherwise the bucks will hear it, but then stay with the doe they have and not even think twice of the sound he just heard.

I always use a grunt call, knights makes a good variable one. I like it because I can make all kinds of calls with one grunt. I can do doe bleats, contact grunts, call grunts, etc.. I dont go out with out it. I use it all the time. Many deer I got, I wouldnt have with out it.
