I called in and killed a nice 6 pointer in LA back in 2011 with a true talker

Lots of hunters, including myself, have had luck with a grunt call. However, I've never heard one that sounded like the real thing.

Thank the lord, I thought I was the only one who has never grunted in a buck. Iíve used grunt in Kisatchie,Tensas,Dewey wills, bushley bayou,private land.......never had any success. But everyone I talk to at work says they grunt em In all the time. I think they are full of crap, Iím in the woods year round . Let a bunch of little ones walk, I grunt at them just to see what happens. 0 success.

I can't say I have grunted in bucks all the time, but I have grunted them in numerous times. Certainly not 100% of the time. Probably more like 10% of the time. That's on public and private land, rut and non-rut. I have also grunted at bucks I didn't want to shoot just to see how they react, and have had them ignore the grunt call. Who knows?
Same with rattling. I have rattled in a few. Not many.
Years ago I bought a fawn in distress bleat call. The first time I used it in a big Arkansas river bottom full of palmettos, I had two does literally run to my stand. Stop about 20 yards away and look around, presumably for the fawn they thought they heard. I have called in a lot of does with the fawn bleat and simply used it to bring a doe in hopes she'll bring a buck with her. Never happened. Always just a doe, and I have heard on two occasions fawns actually bleat for their mother. It is kinda cool just to bring in does with the call, but again varying success. I have used the call while I saw does in the distance and it was completely ignored, and other times I watched the does move quickly in my direction within seconds of my calling.
Anybody else ever use one of those fawn in distress calls?

For most, I think it's primarily that we very rarely hear them grunt and know exactly the tone, or cadence they use, because, like a turkey, they are all unique to them. Some may be louder, and probably most are low toned enough where we cant hear. I am fortunate enough to hunt Illinois, alot...And the deer will ABSOLUTELY come to a grunt, and have had some not pay a mind. I think it's all on how and what the deer is feeling. I have grunted up a ton of deer over the years on my land in West baton Rouge, and have many in different parts of Mississippi.
I do take into account, that when grunting deer, they will come into a range that they can see for a distance, and will generally stop and observe, and if they can't visually see a deer, will leave. Unless it is really thick, and they can't get a true bearing.

Exactly!! One of the bucks I grunted in this year was shot 40yds. I "thought" I heard a grunt but everyone thinks they hear grunts but aren't. I pulled my grunt call out and gave it a few grunts. He was probably 75yrds and grunted 10-12 more times until he was 40yrds. I never seen him until he busted through the thicket so you are spot on. He couldn't pin point the grunt so came in to see.

Oh and my grunt call didn't sound like his grunt at all.

I would suggest the Flex tone call , from Buck Commander, you can adjust it from button buck to 12 point by just moving two fingers.

While you're at it, you might as well pick up a 4 pack of Cabala's wool socks, just in case you come across a friend in a heavy metal band that needs a pair.
