Calling in the Mule Deer

My hunting buddy and I are just getting into calls. We picked up some primo calls. They come with written instructions, but no tape/cd. Can anyone tell me where I can go on the internet to hear these sounds of the bucks and estrous does? It beats paying 30 bucks for a dvd.

Calling in the Mule Deer

I don't believe mule deer can be called. They rut much later than most hunting seasons.

You probably have a whitetail call. Whitetail behave and rut much differently than mule deer.

You can see the deer stopper in action on Gordon Eastmans "old video" Calling Deer. THIS CALL REALLY WORKS . I dont manufacture or sell these I just use them and they work!

do mule deer rut after whitetails up north? i was just wondering cuz i see something totaly different down here, i usuly see muleys rutting about 2-3 weeks before the whitetails start here,, they seem to be going at it the last week in october or the first in november, where our whitetails usualy start around the 15th of november

Mule deer can be called and they will respond to rattling and deer calls as they are much more curious than whitetails . I have had them come within 20 feet of a running diesel truck using the deer stopper while setting on the road . They wont run from it. It makes them nervous but there curiosity gets the best of them . They only cost 7 or 8 bucks if they dont work for you not much lost . But if they work like they do for me you will be serving venison shortly after the use of this call.

Mule deer seem to rut around mid-november around here. This puts it in fourth season for Colorado, most hunters in Colorado go for archery, muzzleloader, and the first 3 rifle seasons. In other words, few hunters are out when mule deer are rutting.

I've never seen or heard of people calling in mule deer. Doesn't mean it can't be done, but it would be unusual.

Mulie's Rut

I was just hunting mule deer 2 weeks ago here in BC and boy were they ever in rut. I think it's around November here when they go into rut. We saw a lot of bucks with there noses up does butts, chasing them around. It was pretty neat to watch. After we got tired of watching them, we shot em. There were five of us out on this trip, and we came back with 6 mulies. One guy had an LEH for doe. Good times.
