Need a quick refresher in deer calling? It's never too early or too late to refresh your memory on how, when and why to use grunts, bleats, rattles and snort wheezes. Our friends at Bone Collector put together the perfect Deer Calling Guide just for that.
"Deer calling is not all that different from turkey calling. Outside of the basic sounds deer make, there are variations and situational sounds, just like turkeys, that can mean the difference from calling one in or having one spook."
The grunt is the most common and popular deer call. There are several different versions of grunts, from soft grunts, doe grunts, social grunts, trailing grunts and tending grunts. The key is knowing when to use a particular type of grunt.
Rattles are the second most common deer call known to hunters. It is used to stimulate two bucks fighting during the rut. Knowing how bucks spar with each other throughout the different phases of the rut will be your key to success.
A doe bleats throughout the year, but the most effective time for a hunter to use a bleat call is during the rut to imitate a hot doe being chased by a buck.
A snort wheeze should never be a first-choice deer call, but using this dominance call at the right time and place can bring in the right buck during the rut.
