deer call's
« on: June 19, 2006, 07:13:26 PM »
 DO'S AND DON'TS, observing the do's and don'ts of good calling. what do you man at GPS have to say about this. #1. never call when the deer is looking right at you?   #2. don't over call, but call just enough to attract the deer's attention?   #3. sometimes a deer will stand montion-less for up to 15 minutes, as it waits for the other deer it heard?   #4. if the deer start's to leave do you start to call to him?   #5.when sould you use only a buck grunt or tending grunt?     i know some of you gps hunters have told me it's too early to start talking deer talk, but i just cant get rid of the deer sick-ness.  note: in two days it's officially summer which means we start to lose some day light, just one more step closer.  p.s this is not a test just want to get some good b.s started.  p.s.s you man will miss me when the season starts, becuse you will not have sticker pt too poke with that big long stick or as madriver said the wip, (nudge-nudge ^-^:D 
they say i'm not that smart for a redneck ( old dixie land old dixie land how i love my dixie land )

Many folks rely on game calls strictly during the rut, or possibly for a brief period prior to the peak breeding activity. Truth be known, there are a variety of deer vocalizations that hunters can employ. From the earliest days of bow season, to well into winter, game calls can often tip the odds in the hunterís favor.

   Without a doubt, one of the most effective calls for early season whitetails, is the fawn bleat. The fawn bleat plays on the maternal instincts of the does. Thus, ninety-five percent of the deer that respond to the call are likely to be does. However, many deer will respond to the fawn bleat simply out of curiosity. Bucks, does, fawns, and even an occasional coyote have been known to come on the run to the sound of a fawn in distress. In a recent study conducted by the author, does responded to the fawn in distress bleat in six out of eight calling stands. In all six of the eight responses, the deer responded to the call in less than thirty seconds. Four of the six does approached to within less than twenty yards. Chances are slim, that the fawn in distress bleat will fool a mature buck. However, for the hunter looking to harvest his or her first whitetail, or even the hunter looking to fill the freezer with a nice fat doe, the fawn distress bleat is possibly one of the most consistent sounds for success.

   There seems to be a myth that looms about hunting camps across the mid-south that deer grunt strictly during the rut. Although grunting does intensify as rutting activity heightens both bucks and does have been recorded grunting throughout the year. The grunt is a basic element of the whitetail vocabulary. The grunt is part of their everyday communication.

   By mid to late October, the mindset of bucks tends to shift from concentrating on filling their stomachs, to making time with the ladies (does). As rutting activity increases, the effectiveness of imitating rutting sounds also increases. These sounds include rattling, estrous bleats, tending grunts, and the snort & wheeze. As with other calls, rutting sounds attract many deer out of mere curiosity, however, these sounds are primarily intended to challenge a buckís dominance. The snort & wheeze used in conjunction with rattling and grunting may be just the ticket to bring a wary buck into bow range. The snort & wheeze is a sound few hunters have heard in the wild, but itís a sound a buck will make when trying to intimidate another buck. Everyone loves a fight. Deer are the same way. Hunters mocking the sounds of a scuffle may soon find themselves with a rutting buck, up close and personal.

To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.
