Question by scbowhunter. Uploaded on November 11, 2010
alond any trail that you know deer are useing regularly. especially those between bedding areas and food sources.
little bit of doe pee strategically placed
a deer growl call....its makes the sound of a buck growling..and the growl means that their is a doe around and it attracts more bucks to come and it kan be heard from a long ways
IMHO~~By F&S Mag thay have Hunting STRATAGYS to fit all your needs!
If the big boy is tending a doe, you are not going to call him off her. So, another stratage I use is doe bleat. The doe sometimes will come to the bleat call and the buck right behind her. Bucks will even investigate a doe bleat. I have taken several that way. Make all the deer noise you can Buck grunts, rattle, doe bleats, just wait in between calls for 15 min. and listen closely. Good to have your doe sent around where you hunt as well. What works?? the one that called in the BUCK. I've used them all and have taken deer with every one of them.
I had a similar question in mind. The true dominant buck I mentioned in an earlier post showed himself again. He seems to be standing watch over a group of 4 does. Not sure as this isnt something I have seen much of in a lot of years in the deer woods. He stays close to them and although my grunting and rattling has drawn in some younger bucks right nearby.....the big boy doesnt even look my way. Were talking about 200 yards out in picked beans. He does seem to follow the does as they feed, so Talons's suggestion of a doe bleat is what I am going to try next. Good hunting all!
During the peak rut, when bucks are tending does, they're not moving much. I think it's a great time to spot and stalk. They will be preoccupied if you know what i mean, and you may just get a shot. The trick is to find the breeding pair.
u can rattle and use doe estrous, possibly even a doe decoy??? sometimes that stuff works, sometimes it doesnt, its a weird time of year, you never know what will work and what wont.
