Rubber band deer call

I think I still have mine out at the lake, but I don't use it. I found it's just as easy to bleat without it.... The faintest little fawn bleats seem to work on all the deer: bucks, does, other fawns..... Until I heard them calling in the bush I didn't realize just how quiet they are, barely a breath. With or without the call, it's important to keep alert. I had a few does go running past last year and I bleated as they went by. It was quite windy but 2 of them circled back and surprised me at about 15 feet when they came to check out the little baby that had lost it's mama.

Rubber band deer call

well, I had the opportunity to try out my call tonight.....however, no luck.

first doe came through right under me at about 20 yards. she kinda milled around and such. at about 45 yards i decided to hit the call. I tried everything, and it was almost as if she was deaf. I tried softly, slowely, and vice versa of these, and she didn't even lift her head.

about 15 minutes later i spotted 2 other does at about 75 yards. so, i began the same way with them as I did the other doe. and again, to no luck.

maybe these deer were just too worried about stuffing their face, because they were piggin out.

Rubber band deer call

updated results:

so I was sitting in my stand sat. night and all of the sudden I hear this noise. immediately it clicks in my head that this sounds exactly like the rubber band deer call. so i reach down into my backpack (or bag of tricks) and grab my call. i hear this one call 4-5 times. i wait till i think that it is done (the calling was coming from behind me) and i blow on the call 2 or 3 times. next thing i hear coming from the opposite way of the earlier calling is these footsteps, and i know that this is coming from a deer, and not a squirrel. i reach and grab my bow from it's hanger, and the deer is on a brisk walk directly at me and stops exactly in one of my shooting lanes at 15 yards. it was only a small 4 point, but he knew exactly where the calling was coming from. he stopped in that shooting lane and attentively stood there for about 5 minutes without moving a muscle. after searching from his current position, he began to walk.....right under my tree. he then stood there and searched around.

to make a long story short, he ended up making a full circle in the woods i was sitting in.

not the kind of buck i was looking for, but an awesome encounter.
