Some advise/views please: Is it in any way 'damaging' to the bucks future behaviour to try to call them in using a Buttalo call long before or long after the rutting season end July/early August?
I managed to call in to some 20 Yards away from me (but not to shoot) a suitable yearling cull buck, first spotted some 200 Yards away. This was the end of April, some 5 weeks ago. Bizarrely the buck did respond to the 'fawn alarm' call but not to the 'buck' call. It was a cold very windy and showery evening with outside temperatures around 6C.
However when out stalking on somebody else's land I was asked not to use the call as it would 'confuse' the bucks and 'spoil' it for later, during the rut. I didn't quite get that, culling bucks is culling bucks (no trophy hunting here) and every advantage I can give myself is one I should take.
True/false; right/wrong; moral/immoral, ethical/unethical?
Thank you for your views.
