Best simple deer call
Heading to Peace River Alberta to hunt with a buddy who lives there in a week and have little experience with calling Whitetails...I want a simple easy to use deer call...and some basic advice on how to use it....Going to be rattling
I like the True Talker OG Buck Call. Pretty easy to use. A couple short grunts can do the trick but you can get more advanced with the calling sequence once you understand whitetail hunting.
I've used them all and my favorite is the Kmeer Deer bite call for whitetails and muleys. About an hour ago I called a really nice muley into my decoys from 150 yards away but he never gave me an ethical shot. I also carry a Haydel grunt call for whitetails and rattling antlers. But day in and day out the bite call is my go-to. I think Flambeau makes it now.
Your mouth. All you need to do is snort wheeze when you want a mature buck to come see you. Threw all my deer calls away years ago.
Primos buck roar grunt call. I couldn't count the number of bucks I've called in with this call. I've owned and used several other grunt calls including Haydels and True Talker and none of them could produce grunts nearly as loud or distortion free as the primos. If you're going to be rattling the primos has snort wheeze tube on it which is nice and has the ability to do the very loud and aggressive buck roar.
Agree with above, with your mouth. I can turn any deer that wants to be turned with my mouth doe bleat or grunt.
Primos buck roar is easy to use and blow.
If you have little or no experience with a call I would suggest you continue one at all.
It ain’t like learning to play the friggen jazz flute, fdp. I’ll use my mouth quite a bit, but also have an older MAD Buck Growler snort/wheeze call that has really good volume (when needed).
One suggestion I would give you, is to not to call to the deer when he is looking in your direction, or at you. They are excellent at keying in on your location. Wait till the deer is looking away, or possibly walking. They usually will still get a pretty good idea of where the sound came from, but you want them to try to find the source. If they don’t hear your call at first, you might have to up your volume some. If they’re too far away to hear your vocalizations, then I’d suggest rattling (assuming you have something to rattle with) just enough to get his attention, then go back to your grunt call.
"It ain't like learnin' to play the freakin' jazz flute fdp"
Depends on how used to being exposed to calls the deer are. Just like any other critter.
True Talker...still the best call I ever used.
Cheesehead. I called in 3 bucks with that call yesterday
Blow a blade of grass between you thumbs.
