A bleet is a great call any season as far as i'm concerned. Often early season it will attract does, which is good because bucks often follow. During the rut, i've seen both bucks and fawns run to my bleet. the bucks looking for a little action, the fawns lookin' for mom, who is out with a buck no doubt.

True story steve. I would say your best time to use it and result in a buck coming in blindfolded looking for tail would be in rut.. Midwest Wisconsin might be running an early rut this year with the cooler temps running through the second half of the summer.. Fall has been warm though. I'd look for rut to start mid-late October (Mid if it starts cooling down early, Late if it holds some warm weather into early October)

YUp call anytime with bleat or grunts, just dont over do it. Bleats work best during the rut but will still bring in the curious deer. If I'm hunting I'm calling, I dont wait for a deer to maybe walk by, I'm saying "hey come here, the party, best acorns, hottest doe, best browse is right here under my stand". You cant see the deer that walks by out of eyesite, calling just might bring in those far off deer. I call with grunt tubes, horns and bleats and I call loudly with my grunt, I wnat to be heard. Just never call to a deer that is already interested in you or your location, they will bust you.
