Are doe calls legit? Or are they like attractants - better at suckering hunters than deer (I've never used attractants either, just regurgitating forum chatter)? Have a tag for anterless in the SHNF and was curious if anyone digs them? If so, which one? I've seen primo's fawn bleat, but it's backordered on amazon for 3 weeks it seems.

Saw someone posted earlier last week about it and it's got me thinkin...

I used a doe bleat Sunday to call in a couple does that had left and disappeared without giving us a shot opportunity. First time I had ever tried it but my son said,"What do we have to lose?"

I have killed almost as many deer using a Primos can as I have with grunt calls. Though I have grunted in several big for teh area bucks

When calling it helps to have cover behind you so they cannot see where the call is coming from and could be in teh brush

I have the can but use one of those small Primos buck calls that have a sliding O-ring that changes the tone.
