How do you use a buck deer call?
Buck fights are serious. Don’t just clank your favorite rattling antlers together repeatedly. Lock them together and get intense as you grind and smash them together. Rattle for 30 to 45 seconds, and add a few grunts to the sequence to increase the realism and separate your calls from rattling by other hunters.
How often should you use a deer bleat call?
Using a grunt call is a great way attract the attention of mature bucks. You should look to only grunt periodically, every 15 minutes to 20 minutes. ‘Blind calling’ can work but it is best to make the calls subtle and sparingly because you don’t know how close a deer might be to you.
How often should you use buck call?
CALL REPEATEDLY In areas in early to mid-October, it can’t hurt to blow half a dozen moderately loud grunts every 20 to 30 minutes. Do this whenever you’re archery hunting in a draw or on a ridge where deer move between bedding and feeding areas. You should also grunt periodically from a stand near a bedding area.
When should I use my deer call?
Bucks grunt during all phases of the rut, including when making scrapes, rubbing trees, fighting, and chasing does. Typically, it is a vocalization to project dominance over a doe or other bucks in the area. A soft grunt call is most effective when a buck is in sight but out of shooting range.
Do deer calls actually work?
A mature buck often behaves the same way. If a buck runs into the sounds of rattling, grunts, or bleats and doesn’t see what he wants to see, he often will take off pretty quickly. That’s why calling is often most effective when the hunter is extremely well concealed.
How do you blind grunt for deer?
Grab a grunt call, like the Buck Roar or Rut Roar, and give 2-3 soft grunts spaced a second apart. Then wait for 5 minutes, to see if there was anything really close. If nothing happens, now it’s time to get a little bit louder to see if you can pull a deer in from way out there.

How far can a deer hear a grunt call?
Grunt at every buck, both shooters and small 4- or 6-points, that you see slipping down a ridge or ducking into cover up to 125 yards away. In my field-testing, a deer can hear your calls that far if the wind and terrain are right. The more bucks you see and call to, the more you learn from their reactions.
When should I start grunting for bucks?
