You can grunt at him. I'v heard people talk about whistling to make them stop but the one time I tried it, it looked like I lit a firecracker under him.
a doe bleat works well, preferably without having to use a call . . . mine is not very good, it sounds more like the baaaah of a sheep but it does the trick . . . I have also heard that some hunters simply say "hey" to get a deer to stop
I had one stop in his tracks a week ago with a "Bah", just like a sheep or something. Too bad I shot under him!
Grunt. If you dont have a call make a grunt with your mouth, short but loud enough for him to stop and look!
ive heard of whistleing but ive never tried it..i usually make a grunt like noise with just my mouth
I mimic a doe bleat its worked pretty well for me
all you have to do is put to buck decoys out to look like their fighting and put acorns or deer corn out
Just do a doe bleat or whistle. I've stopped Muley Bucks with a whistle so they stop and look at my direction so I can better judge how big (wide, heavy or tall) their antlers are.
If you are archery hunting making a noise to stop a deer will put the deer on alert and you're just asking for it to jump the string. I put scent out that blows across my shooting lanes to stop a deer or while setting up a stand I put natural barriers that make deer stop or turn. Either way making a noise to stop a deer would be the last thing but if you have to just "bah" like a harmless little doe for best results.
I use a grunt or MAAH sound. Works for me anyways.
If you are ready for a quick shot and don't have any calls, I like to yell or whistle. He will only give you about 3 seconds though.
Grunt calls are perfect for this situation.
I have heard many different types of noises to get a deer to stop. The one i hear the most is a MAAH or BAAH sound. Whatever noise you make you want to make sure it is a natural noise so he doesn't just run away.
I always say QUACK. Seems to work.....
