Question by Cgull. Uploaded on August 20, 2009
just a mouth grunt will stop them normaly. but why a quartering away shot over the full broad side shot which give the best access to both lungs .
Just do a "Murrrrrp" I've stopped running deer with that.
Just was asking to get an idea of what every one uses, the angle of the deer is relevant for the question as a deer walking away will act different than one walking broadside. My father uses a slow whistle and it works for him. Getting a deer to stop in any ideal position is going to be hard, as we all know deer will stop behind a tree before it'll stop where we want them to.
I usuall use a B-a-a-a,B-a-a-a ... almost always they turn broadside,to see what junior is up to!
2Poppa got it.
I'm with 2Poppa. They don't all stop with this but I have stopped quite a few. Have stopped some with the whistle but spooked more than I stopped. At least with the B-a-a-a-a, they don't seem to spook and if they don't stop, you can still take your best shot if you have one.
Short mouth grunt " errp" has never failed me. Draw your bow first and be ready to shoot before you grunt.
Grunts almost always stop them!
Any sound that is not too quiet or loud will probably get them to stop and look...but not for long. Just give it your best deer impersonation and it may at least give you a shot.
I use either the Baaah, or Muuuurrp mentioned previously. if i was a better whistler, i'd try that too. bleet cans work great, but i need a hands free stopper.
Agreed with 2Poppa and + 1 for you sir!!!
