Doe Bleat

Cut out of work early yesterday for an afternoon sit. Hunted from ground - left climber at home. Settled into my spot around 3:30PM. At 4:45 decided to try my newly purchased doe bleat can. Five minutes later a young 6pt came running in at me and stopped at 15ft. Not quite what I am looking for so decided to pass. We had a 3 minute stare down then he turned and walked off.

At 5:30 did another doe bleat sequence. Five minutes later a fox came in 5 yds from me and at same time a doe presented at 25 yds. Fox trotted off, watched doe feed on acorns for about 15 minutes before wandering off. Didn't harvest a deer but had a great afternoon in the woods.

In my 37 years of deer hunting I have never used a doe bleat. Have used grunt call & rattled. Friend of mine swears by the doe bleat and convinced me to try it. I'm trying to figure out if these two experiences were purely coincidence or not. Any input relative to doe bleat calls?

I've had a lot of success with a bleat can over the years. More so than with a grunt tube

I bought the "Primos Original Can Estrus Bleat Deer Call" but I'm certain that there are alternate brands that would work just fine...

I never had a buck do anything other than look my way when using a grunt. I've had deer, mainly younger bucks, trot right into me on several occasions with the bleat can. Never until the last week of October into November tho....I do three short bleats and wait 30 minutes. Several years ago I had 3 yearling bucks come right under my stand from 3 different directions in early November after one bleat sequence. After 10 minutes of looking and smelling the scent wick I had, they turned and walked off. In disbelief I bleated 3 times as they were walking away at about 100-125 yards and they all did a 180 and walked right back to me...

I have had success with the can, but as others have mentioned, only with 2.5 year old bucks and younger. Once they hit 3.5 which is what I consider a mature buck, they don't fall for it on public land. However, private land mature bucks will come into it.

In case you guys don't know, public land and private land bucks are two COMPLETELY different animals.
