I was hunting at a feeder yesterday afternoon and the wind was blowing toward the feed pen from the blind and it was starting to snow and sleet. There were 2 bucks in the pen, an 8 pointer with one entire side broken off and a really nice 8 with good height, good tine length and mass, but no width and then there was a small 4 point walking around outside the pen. Anyway, it was dark thirty and I wanted to run the bucks off without really scaring them. I gave my best imitation of a buck grunt and the two bigger bucks looked up. I did it again and the broken off 8 jumped out of the pen and ran straight toward the blind looking for the source of the noise. He trotted up to where I could have spit on him out of the tower blind. I grunted again and the better buck jumped out of the pen and ran straight toward the blind looking for the source of the noise. He broke off to the right and stopped and stood there for about 30 seconds. They both came to the noise. Our deer have not rutted yet. Our rut is usually around the 1st week in December. Are these bucks so juiced up and ready to breed that they appreciated my efforts to the degree that they thought the rut was on and they did not want to miss out? Past efforts at trying to get bucks to stop or step out of brush have resulted in them tucking their tail and heading out in high gear. This time I was trying to run them off and here they come. I just wonder what these bucks expecting to find?

Just using my mouth. Sort of sounds like a short vocalization of a billy goat when he is romancing the nannies. I just tried to imitate sounds that I have heard bucks make.

A grunt is usually made by a buck on a doe, or on a hot trail from my experience. I think they thought they would get "lucky". A buck can breed biologically year round, but as you get in cooler weather climates, the timing gets more concise, "rut". You my be closer to the rut than you think this year?

In any event, I bet that was exhilarating having them come like that, I always get tickled when you can do that, or rattle them in, of course in this case, you where trying to run them off, most fellas get the opposite effect most of the time. roflmao

They were looking for the hot doe that that other 'buck' was grunting at.

Deer communicate with each other through bleets and grunts etc. so the deer where obviously offended by what you were doing and came looking so they could kick your butt.

They were looking for whoever invaded their space.
