Buck growl?

Postby Sailfish » Wed Jun 25, 2008 8:32 am

Somewhere I heard or saw the term "buck growl" mentioned (I think it was in conjunction with a device).

Today I read an article that mentioned it.

What do you know?

I don't know about a growl ...but I've heard the snort wheez and use it my self...also one day I had two buck trot past me while walking and the bigger of the two was make  a loud ...hhmm..clicking noise ...like one of those new years eve party noise makers that you spin around...or a stick being run down the teeth of a large comb. I'd like to know more about both..

There is a call thats suppose to imitate a buck growl. Bucks growl ? [8|] Primos does make a deer calling dvd and it talks about a buck making a "clicking" grunt during the rut.

That's right bucks growl to call in estus doe's. I heard of the clicking sound too. The makers of the buck growl sell it with a dvd that show's you how to use the growl and clicking sounds to call in bucks. I think if you visit thier website you can view the dvd for free. I heard a old buck use a deep tone grunt growl once,and call doe's in making that sound with my grunt call. Primos sells a roar which is about the same,but adds a snort wheeze to the call. Both seem to work from what I've seen.

The buck "growl" is a M.A.D product. I've seen guys using them on Drury Outdoors videos. I bought the Primos buck "roar" last season and used it (and a can bleat) to get a huge buck to come in close during the rut. I really like it... you can get loud and aggressive with it and it doesn't sound like a duck call. Comes with a snort/wheeze tube which works decent. Really, you can do a snort/wheeze with your mouth almost as easy. I recommend it... I even bought my brother one for his B-Day.

i have never heard the growl in the woods, but bought the call anyway. it makes a good deer call and have called in a few good bucks even a nice 10pt.

I have never heard the growl here in Maine but have seen the vids and the calls. I'm still not convinced.
