Favorite Grunt Sequence?

8 posts in this topic

Hi All,

Just sitting here contemplating the upcoming weekends and the rut coming into full swing... Started thinking about different grunt sequences and wondered what is your most successful? I have usually used a sequence of 4 grunts with pauses in between each grunt. Has been successful here and there for "cold calling" What do you do?

curious more than anything, and would potentially give me more options for different situations. The growl may be happening this weekend too...

Thanks

Steve

I usually do the same, 3 or 4 grunts maybe 20 min. to half hour between. Now with the rut coming on I will add an estrus bleat or two from a can call also.

3-4 grunts. Usually I mix a couple of short ones (just a puff) in with a half exhale or two. The grunts are still short. Now, I'll start mixing in the can a little bit. If I have a deer not coming in to the grunt, I'll hit the can call a quick 4-5 times. Last year it brought in a deer that otherwise would have walked by me.

When I rattle. I usually grunt, rattle, grunt, rattle, grunt. The rattle sequences are a couple of minutes long and the grunts will vary in tone. I have noticed that there are two different kind of grunts the bucks will make. There is one that sounds like my lohman call. Not very deep, more like an EHHH sound than anything. I have heard the bucks making this when they are chasing the does. And then there is the dominant grunt I can get from my true talker. I here this when they are announcing there presence. I use both during the rattling sequence to immitate two different bucks. Anybody else notice these different types of grunts? Good luck.

I play the "shave & a haircut, two bits"

repeatedly until I'm bludgeoned about the head by another member of my party, then I switch to "mary had a little lamb" and sometimes "we wish you a merry christmas"

it's not for everyone... it's reserved mthod for grunt tube masters.

if you laugh into the tube while performing it's all over... you get the dreaded goose honk... no good.

I also play a mean American anthem grunt tube solo, hendrix style...

to most it just sounds like a lot of irritating noise, but I can hear it, it's beautiful... tongue.gif

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
