Thread: Buttolo Deer caller

  1. #1

    Buttolo Deer caller

    Can anyone advise me on whether the Buttolo Roe caller is worth the money (around 25) and how effective it is for Muntjac?

    Or offer any other suggestions

    I find it generally works pretty well if used sparingly and is a good way of getting a deer to stop in its tracks for a shot too..... Only thing to remember is which pocket it's in when you et down to crawl for a shot, the amount of times I've accidentally squeaked when doing that you'd think I'd learn!!
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    I went out with a chap on his ground last week, we bumped 3 fallow 5 mins in and then saw nothing for 2 hrs,
    Wind was wrong on the way back with a MJ Buck trotting off in the distance.
    I set the gun on the sticks and gave a few soft squeaks as he was out of sight, a few more and he came trotting back with his head bobbing looking for the squeak.

    A clear shot at 140 yards and over he went, my friend said " well I liked that"

    Fantastic reaction even with the wind on our backs.

    25.00 wont really make much difference over a life time, however you could well remember that special deer for a very long time...

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...

    An hour in the field is worth a week of typing trash.....

    Yes, it works on muntjac and on roe in the rut....but they have to be in the right mood.

    I've called muntjac in but also had them ignore it completely, and I'd be hard pushed to say why they reacted differently in each instance. Roe bucks (and does) will certainly come to them in the rut.

    There are no guarantees in stalking, and the deer don't read the books or belong to SD

    Never, ever worked on Muntjac for me.
    During the rut mid-July-mid-August effective at calling in Roe bucks approx 50% of the time.
    April-June effective on calling-in Roe buck very occasionally.
