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.
There is one tip I have learned over the years in hunting whitetails in late season snow. Do not overlook soybeans left standing on the edges of fence rows, woods, creeks, buildings wherever it might be, this is where the deer will be while the food lasts during late season. December/January will pull deer in from some distance away to feed on the easy to get to food.
I killed one of my nicest bucks off of a very small patch of soybeans that was left after rains created a...
