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

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
