(Click on the call that you want to hear)
Non Aggressive Deer Calls
Contact Calls : This sound is a doe's way of locating other deer of her family group . This call can be used all year long.
Doe Grunt : Grunts are a doe's way of saying come here , also to call her fawns at feeding time . It is critical to keep the call soft as a loud grunt is too aggressive of a call.
Buck Grunt : A buck grunt is a deeper pitch than a doe grunt , it means the same thing . The older the buck the deeper the tone.
Tending Grunt : As the buck chases the doe as the rut approaches he is frustrated, and makes a series of soft grunts while trailing her. It's the bucks way of asking her to stop so he can be breed with her.
Buck Bawl : This sound's a lot like a calf bawl , but it is a series of buck bleats. This signals the bucks desire for company.
Sparring : This is a non aggressive and social behaviour that all bucks do after shedding their velvet . This is when the bucks learn who can whip the other . This process does not prevent serious fights later on during the rut.
Rage Grunts : This is the sound that a buck makes during the courtship when the doe stops running , but won't let the buck breed her. It's a non aggressive and frustration call by him.
Estrus Bleat : This is the sound that a Doe makes to signal that her breeding time is near.
Breeding Bellow : This is the sound that a Doe makes to signal that she ready to breed RIGHT NOW.
Aggressive Deer Calls
Sniff : Deer make this sound to intimidate other deer and prevent fights. This call is often made by a rut- crazed buck when confronted with a rival. This sound can send smaller buck running from the area.
Wheeze : Another rut crazed Bucks sound to intimidate other deer and prevent fights when confronted with a rival. This sound can also send smaller buck running from the area.
Aggressive Rattling : This is a short aggressive rattling sequence to possibly lure in less aggressive, but curious buck, as well as the local dominant whitetail buck of the area. To make this sound like a real fight sniffs, wheezes and grunts have also been thrown in for added effect.
