If I need to grunt, or bleat, to stop a buck or get his attention...
I just usually "mouth call"
Never had much success "calling" deer...??

Not sure, I'm still using the first one I bought 30+ yrs ago.
I'm sure any name brand would be just fine.

I've always have two with me.

One is the True Talker from Hunter Specialties.
Good call with good range of sounds from deep grunts to doe bleats by sliding your finger up and down the reed through a flexible rubber outer coating. It also has a wooden tang next to the reed to prevent the reed from freezing during those cold November hunts due to vapor from your mouth.
Down side is it's not very loud for those windy days or if a buck is out there a couple hundred yards.

Number two is the Buck Roar from Primos.
Good loud grunt with a snort wheez tube attached.
This is my go to call for the rut, you can get very aggressive with it when rattling.

I have a Quaker Boy Buck Hammer. It's a tiny little thing and it sounds great. It makes surprisingly deep grunts as well as doe bleats. I dropped mine last December right after I shot a buck down in Ohio and I didn't have time to go looking for it. When I got down there again in April, I went straight out to the spot where I had shot from, and there it was. A little dirty, but untouched by squirrels and mice..

I have no doubt I've chased more deer away with those darn things than ever called them in. Watched them turn and scoot. I must have lots of timid bucks.

I was in my tree stand one evening and another hunter came in and climbed up into a tree 80 yards to my left. He had no clue I was there. An hour in half later I had several does a basket rack and a ok 8 point feeding 15 yards to my right. I also had two large bucks about 70 yards away feeding on the same path those deer had came in on. I knew I was going to get one of them. Just then the guy to my left blows his grunt the two big bucks diss appeared the doe seemed agitated and the two smaller bucks were both interested. He blew his grunt again and the two two smaller bucks headed his way with the ok 8 point leading the way. I waited and heard and the buck crash off and then I heard him hoop in excitement. I climbed down and announced my self he was very excited and had a hard time believing I was there the whole time. He was very excited the had called the two bucks in. He hadn't seen any deer until after he grunted. I helped him track his deer and drag it out. Those two mature bucks were having nothing to do with that grunt tube however the two smaller ones liked it. Since then I will only grunt call when I see a deer that is not coming in or is leaving the area. I don't want to be scaring off animals I haven't even seen.

I enjoy the woods taking game is the icing on the cake.

I usually carry 2 also. One for light days and one for windy days. The loud one is a MAD growl I think. The light call is either a HS True Talker or the Extinguisher. I Have grunted several in with this combination. I have also sent a dandy or two the other way...

I grunt with my voice, have for years. Very effective at the right time. My late brother was featured in a bowhunter magazine article written by Dr. David Samuel back in the early '70s about "ERPING". That was before all the commercial calls came out.

It depends on where you hunt. For years I used a Hally caller. That had the creaky door sounding grunt that just worked. Called lots of deer with it. Many grunt calls imo are too deep for where I hunt. That's why people aren't having luck at times I bet.
The Hally caller went finally 2 years ago. Now I'm using one by Mike Yingling. It's good and beautiful but no where near the Hally.
Also is a solid Osage turned wooden call. Kinda like the ones with the tube on it as I can direct the sound.

I use a Flextone Rage. I've never called a deer in that I know of. It just doesn't seem to work around here.

I like my handmade calls from Jeremy Holden. When used at the right time, they can work well.
