Coyote call works on Mulies..I supose anything happening will work if they are interested enough to investigate. I did however use a buck call one time messing with a nice 5x5 and he didnt even act like he cared, brought a fuzz tail right in though that I hadnt seen bedded not for from me.
According to Fred Eichler it does. In his book "bowhunting western big game" he has a photo and story of a big buck his wife shot with her bow that came in to a can call doe/fawn bleat. 200yards out and came into 25yards for the shot. I plan on trying that and rattling on my Jan. bow hunt here in NM this year.
My dad has used his fawn in distress mouth call, for coyotes, on mule deer for years (over 30 years). I bought the primos can for his birthday two years ago and it works every bit as well. Good luck and good hunting!
I have got them to stop with a homemade quail call. And a buddy said to take my Hoochie Mama cow call on my next deer hunt ,he's stopped them a few times now with it. I'll try it this year. I've rattled in Blacktails.
from my observation tha can call does not work very well on mule deer but it works really well on white tail, the best i seen from it is when you just get a very short quite bleat from it and dont can very often and every time i try to call them in closer they run so once i get them walking my way i stop and they keep walking untell they get to the spot they think they heard it
I have wondered that myself. I was told at one time that whitetail calls wouldn't work on mule deer. I believed it from then on, although as I sit here and read through these posts, I'm not sure why I did. If I'm back out hunting them next year, then I will bring my can call with me and give it a try. There are plenty of whitetails in the area I normally go, so at least it would be a natural sound to them and nothing out of the blue.
Every year my Pro-Staff and I head to the woods to hunt the old wise Tom. We travel thousands of miles covering numerous states hunting these old guys. Lots of times we end up hunting public lands or private property that have been hunted already. That’s the last thing you want to hear when you just traveled 6 hours that someone else has already hunted the property. We had to come up with a game plan and one real fast.
The first thing we did was ask the farmer were they usually see the birds in...
