Calling your Deer
« on: July 17, 2005, 04:02:19 PM »
Last year i went on my first deer hunt it was a youth hunt doe only. I Called with a primos grunt & bleat and also used a fawn call which was recomended to me by one of the top guys at primos. I sadly did not bag a doe. Does any one use a fawn call in the early season and also can any one give me a pattern to try in the grunt and bleat? Also i was wondering how long to wait befor calling again? Also do you use a call?

 Thanks,

I'm not  much of a grunter or bleater 870, although I have used them to stop a deer for a shot. I have used the Primos fawn distress with some missed results. It's very effective when there are small fawns around, only problem is most states don't have a season open yet. When I used to hunt in GA, I could reliably bring does in all summer long, and even a few up into the first couple of September weeks. Then they just  stop coming. The few times that I brought them in, in EARLY bow season, I never could get a shot off. They came fast and hard, with the ears laid back, almost like they were looking for a fight. Also, they had the exact location of the sound pinpointed, before they arrived, which made it difficult to draw. The only way I could see to get one, would be to know which direction they were coming, and to be drawn beforehand. I thought about, but never got around to trying, the buddy system. Every doe I called seemed to have 100% of their attention directed to the call and ignored everything else she came by.  Possibly another hunter could take an easy shot while her mind is on the lost fawn :-\.  I thought I could stay out of sight by calling from a treestand, but sadly, I could never bring one in from a tree-only from the ground. Imagine that?

 Anyway, this has just been my personal experience.  As with anything, "Your Results May Vary"
