Question by Big-Buk. Uploaded on October 01, 2010
that's a really open question because most are meant to do the same thing and work the best during the rut. rattling and grunting are meant to get the deer angry or agressive and a doe bleat is to get the buck twitterpated or just plain horny. use them all and don't limit yourself.
I would say a grunt call, you can do social grunts in the early season and aggressive or tending grunts during the rut.
Im with Mark J on that one a grunt call is my all time go to call even in early season just dont make it aggressive.
Bleats usually fawn or doe bleats will work but its best to be able to see the deer when you use them. They should make the deer come closer if the deer goes on alert or walks away could be the call is out of season such as tending grunts or buck roar those are predominantly rut calls but small grunts and bleats are used year round. i had a fawn under my stand the other day making little tending bleats in order to locate his mother she came in about ten minutes after he did and found her fawn i think i spooked and separated them when i walked in. Does will answer to fawn bleats almost year round. bucks if in sight may come to check out where a grunt came from.
