ORIGINAL: Lot to Learn
. . . I rely on putting my stand in good spot and shutting up.
I rattle early in the season, because after mid Oct. every one has pretty much turned the deer off with calling too often around here. Rattle in short 1-2 minute bursts every hour, then watch to see deer movement. I never rattle once the deer has committed, that just ups the odds that you will get busted. I use grunts only to turn a deer towards my direction, and most of the time they pay no heed to my couple grunts anyway. I also never rattle before dark, because I don't want a buck under my stand I can't see.ORIGINAL: Lot to Learn
the video you guys are talking about , the deer doctor, is that good to teach what time of year to try different calls. Like I have said, and my name, I do have tons to learn. I have only been deer hunting few years and pretty much self taught, although when I started I was hunting with someone who thought they knew absolutely everything and I will admit probably knows more than me, most things said were bull. I have called does in with the can and I have called a buck all the way under my stand with a soft doe grunt, not a shooter but one of my favorite times in the woods. I honestly have no faith in myself as to when to grunt when to rattle so I rely on putting my stand in good spot and shutting up. I know if I was better at knowing when to try what I would have better success.
