unfamiliar grunt

Recommended Posts

Guest nitroguy

Was hunting saturday morning and used a grunt call. Afterwards, i heard a grunt that had the same call pattern like a paliated woodpecker but was grunting. Saw the deer about 60 yards out but sounded like he was in the stand with me. Didn't know a deer could cast his vocals like that.

I usually do not do a lot of calling real early on in the season, but I have heard woodpeckers often that sound very similar to bucks grunting, and have also heard bucks grunting responding to my calling that I questioned if it was not a woodpecker. Far as casting their grunts, have not ever seen or heard that, but in hilly wooded areas sounds can bounce around and echo some.

One of the places I used to hunt the deer made these short "URP!" grunts that if I imitated were very effective.

I actually witnessed a deer making this call which is what clued me in to trying to copy it. It was an awesome thing but it seems to have just been a local phenomena. Trying it elsewhere just didn't seem to work.

If you are sure the deer made the noise than for sure try to imitate it. If not, you'll have to experiment to decide.

It could be just a local thing for that area or nothing but a case of mistaken hearing.

it was the cadence that I was referring to. I actually seen the buck doing this or at least I thought it was him.

Interesting. Like Leo said, I would probably try to imitate the cadence and see what happens.

Are you talking like the deer made a bunch of short successive grunts?

I actually have heard a buck make a series of short successive grunts...I hadnt been hunting very long but I used a grunt call and this buck came running in making alot of short (and I mean short) almost tapping grunts.

crazylegz, that's what this buck was doing. but I was unaware of the doe next to the tree line. My buddy who was hunting about 70 yards away said he seen the whole thing and told me about the doe being there too.

I think Knight and Hale made a call once that you could inhale and exhale through to imitate that. It was called a hyper grunt or something like that.

Almost like a clicking sound, right? Yeah, I've heard that once or twice.

My experience I believe was in early/middle season. Not sure if it was during rut tho. I just remember my experience because it was the first time I heard a buck grunt and I didnt think they were supposed to sound like that...LOL

It sounded like a deep clicking tho...weird, but i watched him for about 5 seconds doing it while running....

I've seen Lee Lakosky do this clicking thing with a grunt tube. He had success with it.

old post but I think this is what you heard, Ive experienced it too just before a buck mounted a doe;  think Primos  or Drury calls it the buck roar
