I have been grunting with no success until yesterday. I had to work so I got to the stand at 2:45pm and once I sat I grunted 1 time then 10 minutes later I grunted once more then this 5 walked out. I'm not one to shoot a 5 point most of the time but I had to break the buck ice this year. The only shot I had was a neck shot which I never tried before and now I am a fan. I got down and drug him under my stand got back up and 2 big doe walked out so I picked the biggest and dropped her also. I think I figured out how to grunt call after this. I have been grunting every 10 to 15 minutes in a series of 3 or 4 grunts with no success. I think the key now is to only hit the call once every 15 to 30 minutes. That was the first time it worked so it's a work in progress but it was way cool.

Nice set of deer there!

I have tried all sorts of timing and grunting combinations and have yet to have a deer step out. What grunt are you using?

It's a Harmon Deer Scents grunt call. I don't think they have a website but they specialize in southern deer pee. I figure it works better than piss from Ohio for this area. There # is 706-635-3337. I have had luck with there scents in game camera locations.

Congrats on the double up, well done. The neck shot is by far my favorite shot, I am sure you know this but if you aim just a little bit more central to the neck it will drop them everytime (Turns the spinal cord to jelly). A throat shot will kill them for sure (but a lot of times they will run)but when you are closer to the spine they will fall right there. Congrats again, doubling up is always a treat.:clap

That's the only shot I had. He came out down wind and was spinning to run. He ran about 30 yards. Holy crap what a blood trail! There was blood in trees above my head.

Then my brother it was a hell of a shot, and it always works. Never a problem tracking them that is for sure. Congrats again.:clap

. I shot the buck at 3:30 only minutes after sitting and the doe about 45 minutes left to see. As far as the scent 3 doe in a green spray bottle with a orange lable.
