There are primarily two kinds of big game calls available at Field & Stream: deer calls and elk calls
Deer calls can be broken down into the following categories:
- Grunt Calls: Most grunt tubes allow you to mimic a variety of sounds that deer make throughout the season. With a little practice, you can create realistic social, tending and dominant buck grunts that will get the attention of the most cautious deer.
- Bleat Calls: Doe and fawns will use the bleat call as a social or locator call. Fawn bleats appeal to a doe’s maternal nature and tend to be effective all season, while standard doe bleats will attract bucks throughout the rut.
- Rattle/Antler Calls: Use rattling calls to create the sounds of two bucks brawling in a literal head-to-head battle. The sounds of rattling antlers can travel long distances and attract a crowd.
The most popular elk call is arguably the bugle call. The bugle call is used to challenge a bull and bring him in range.
At Field & Stream, you will also find elk calls specifically designed to mimic cow sounds—an effective tool you can use to create chirps, mews and alarm barks.
