I was just wondering if these work at all. I would think that Doe Urine would work during the rut but I've never tried it or talked to anyone that has. Also, I've heard bucks snort but am wondering if it is anything like white tails and if buck calls would work at all on the mule deer.

I have only heard one buck grunt and that was in the thick of the rut back in 2003. It didn't sound quite like a whitetail. I personally think that a doe bleat would work a lot better than a grunt on Muleys around here.

Two weekends ago I got a nice four point to do an about face and come back toward me with a deer grunt. I wasn't able to get a shot off, but I know during the rut you can usually at least get the buck to stop in its tracks with a grunt. My cousin and his friend grunted a pretty nice three point within 7 yards of them before his friend shot it.

I can get many buck mule deer to stop using a call, but only in November during the rut. Only problem is our season closes in early October.
