Some good calling advice

4 posts in this topic

I'll grunt 2-5 times in a row then pause for 10 seconds.Repeat this about 3 or 4 times.I'll use short deer grunts until the last 4 or 5 grunts.The last of my calls will be long loud and deep with a rasp to it.

I'll wait about 30 seconds then smash a big set of antlers together and make it sound like war world 3 and keep this up for 10 minutes if nothing comes in.Then stop wait about a minute then do several long loud deep grunts

Dont do this when your hunting alone.Most of the time you'll get busted so have a friend(S) along to do the shooting and take turns from spot to spot

Set the shooters up about 40 yards away from the guy doing the clashing.Try and set up so the deer wont want to come in down wind of the caller.

Read up on what came into this on Oct 21st/22nd winner is

I have been doing this for about 4 or 5 years now.Works very well for the next week to 10 days after that throw this idea out the window until next season

I rattled in a small buck this last week. I also watched a larger buck come out into a field about 400 yards away and watch 2 small bucks sparing for about 10 minutes, but did not come any closer to them. Hopefully as things heat up, the bigger boys will start to show some interest.

I shot a doe this morning that was grunting kinda like a buck.I thought for sure it was a buck coming in, but it was a mature doe with her nose to the ground and grunting every so often.She came in broadside at 10 yards and I sunk the Thunderhead through both lungs and she went 50 yards and tipped over.Now for the skinning, and butchering! Hmmmm, I wonder what I'm gonna have for supper tonight? grin.gif

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
