Default Shockwave for deer

How many are using there fox pro calls to deer hunt.I am 70 and cant walk far so I started to use my call to call deer in. the first time I call a doe I shot her with my cross bow flowing was a huge buck what a bumer. The next day I called a 8 point and killed it a three year old nice The next four days I called 9 does with bucks with 7 of them thy didnt get close enough to shoot. to day I called a nice 9 point and killed it .It was 4years od scored 134. that is all the bucks I can kill in IL. I misted two other bucks one a 12 point the other a 10 both monsters . The sounds I use are fawn bleat and fawn in distress played at the same time that works on does and in the rut bucks are with does I use bucks fighting and bucks sparing at the same time.When I hunt deer I call all the time. What a ball O I use a Shockwave Kotaclem from The middle of IL

It isn't legal for hunting here, but I've used my Fury to call deer and elk for photo purposes. It works great!

Wow, you must have a huge population of bucks and does where you live. Here in west Oregon calling for deer usually does not work. The populations are low therefore the deer are very alert and shy away from calling. Deer around here get hunted 5 months per year by humans and every day by lions. I think you are very fortunate to have that many deer. Hope you keep healthy and kill more.
