Just out of courousity, what is everyone calling with right now? I have been on the buck call, but Im having modest luck at best and am thinking perhaps I need to be on a doe bleet right now? Any thoughts?

Haven't used my calls yet. I like to wait until I feel the rut is well underway.

Will use a little antler rattling and light grunting this weekend if it looks like some scrapes have really started opening up.

As far as calls, I realy like the True Talker grunt tube, the bleat in the can, and my rattling antlers....real or rattle bag, I've rattled in and shot bucks with both.

This year I'm going to try thr Bow Grunter Plus. I have a True Talker but the settings changed on me when the rubber bands were bumped so I decided to try something else. I also use the bleat in the can.

They sell a plush hedge hog dog toy at Pet Supplies Plus and I have found no better grunt call than that.

I ripped it apart and tie-wrapped the noise maker to the base of my climbing stand after covering it with a black sock. With a simple twitch of my left foot I have hands free operation.

I also use 2 can calls, and the Bow Grunter Plus.

Can calls work great even early season.

Tried soft doe grunts last weekend with no luck, but as soon as the rut kicks in I will use a Primos doe in estrous can call, with my grunt call. This combo got a beautiful 9pt last year.

Rod Benson wood deer call set on doe grunt.
Been using that call for 15 yrs. and have killed 99% of my bucks with it, including both this year.
