Gander Mountain has been kind enough to provide us periodic hunting and fishing tips from their pro staff members. This weeks tip talks about a specific form of game calling:
Grunting up whitetails doesn’t work all the time, any more than any other form of game calling. But while you’re sitting on your stand, an occasional series on a grunt tube does no harm, and unlike rattling, it may pull in a buck at any time of the season, whether the rut is on or not. A second and perhaps more important use for a grunt call is to stop a passing buck in order to get a stationary shot. Even bucks that are actively chasing does are likely to pause momentarily when you give a soft grunt.
