I have heard it said that a rutting roebuck with his attention on his attendant doe is difficult to call. But not impossible.
On many occasions in the past I have called rutting roebucks away from the object of their desire with a Buttolo call.
The same happened again tonight. I managed to call a good mature buck away from the doe he was with.I got him to approach to within 40yds , jump the fence back into the forestry and get himself shot.
I don't know whether there is a window of opportunity to enable this ??.. for instance I don't know whether the doe had already stood for him or she was not quite as ready as he was and therefore more able to be distracted??.
I would be interested to know the experience of others on this subject. Its exciting stuff when it works!.
