    I know everywhere is different but on my last sit I found that mixing up my buck grunts seemed to work. I would do a short one, a couple longer ones than a couple shorter ones. I brought in a small 3x3 and potentially brought the big guy to me the same way.

    Yeah, I've been trying to learn from YouTube videos. Just got a chance to watch the video, hard to see on a small screen and the glare but he looks to be a solid 10. Curious to know what he scores but kind of scared to know at the same time.

    Got a few good shots of him, can't tell if he had brows or not so may be a 8 or 9

    Hopefully he finds you. Either way you'll have to share your footage

    I'll post it once I get back home. When he was about 70 yds and still walking away I tried to get louder with the grunt, sounds more like a kazoo. I'm curious to hear what kind of score people put on him. After watching the video he's definitely bigger than I thought, especially if he has both brows.

    Nothing like live decoys they've now bedded down 50 yds in front of me, right where slob cut through. Only have a gimped up spike in tow right now

    It's ok I'm letting out a few can calls with some grunts after every shot. Deer just think it's a rough neighborhood, ghetto deer.

    Hate to imagine what happens next weekend. Someone probably be firing a cannon or mortar launcher

    It's right beside Calgary, Alberta. The weather all week is going to be just over or under -10. I'm not looking forward to it, although it might mean more hunting time for me, just some really cold hunting time. Good luck in Sask. Are you going through a guide out there?

    Good luck everyone. We got 3" of blowing snow over night and it's -8 deg C. So 18 deg F for most of ya. I'm hoping we will have some good movement. I took all the AA batteries from home so I should be able to at least get some pics.

    Yeah we are, non residents have to hunt with a guide in Sask. Its an outfitter that we have been hunting with for the last 10+ years, pretty much family at this point it seems. killed a 172" 5X6 last year decided to bring the bow this year, but its going to be tough with the weather. Good luck!
