WHITETAILS Of all the big-game species, whitetail bucks are the most notorious for circling downwind in response to calls and rattling. To account for this on an evening hunt, for example, Hunter A should set up closest to the suspected bedding area, along a travel route leading to a feeding area. Hunter B should set up 40 to 60 yards slightly downwind and to the side of the buck's typical travel route. Ideally, Hunter B can place some terrain feature--such as a creek, a pond edge, or a steep rock face--at his back that will help keep a circling buck in front of him. Hunter A should be the primary caller and rattler. An approaching buck might charge right in to his efforts, but if the deer pulls around in a circle, Hunter B gets the shot.
