Deer Calls for Dummies

Understanding the way Whitetail's communicate can be key to hunting success

Attention: Wired To Hunt has moved to WiredToHunt.com. Come check out the new site!

I know a lot of people have questions about how deer actually vocalize in the wild. It can be pretty difficult for the inexperienced hunter to effectively replicate a deer with a call, when he or she doesn’t even know the right sound to make. Obviously doing research, watching videos or having in-the-field experience can help us understand how deer communicate, but not everyone has the time or ability to gather this information first hand. But recently I’ve found a pretty neat resource for those of you who wonder exactly how the much-talked-about “snort wheeze” call is supposed to sound or still aren’t sure exactly how to make a realistic buck grunt. I recently ran upon a website that that contains brief sound clips of the most common deer vocalizations and deer calls, which can be played  online for your listening pleasure. This helpful resource is provided by the Outdoor Adventures Network and you can check it out at this link http://www.myoan.net/huntingart/deer_calls.html

Hope this is helpful and I’ll definitely continue to explore the issues of calling and rattling in deer in the future, as this is one of the most successful but also confusing tactics to use when hunting Whitetail Deer.

Boy, I sure can use this! I still haven’t figured out the fine points of buck calls. Good article Mark!
