    I've called out a Red with an old army trip flare tube in the past, danpd will confirm that. I've been told that an old whisky bottle tube works as well.
    Owning a gun or knife and not using it, is akin to not sleeping with your girlfriend to keep her neat and tidy for the next bloke.

    No such thing you say, well i have been twice in the last 2 weeks and have called and shot a stag on both occasions! The one i had this weekend was called away from a hind from at least half a mile across a wooded valley! That was using a length of 50mm flexible conduit.

    gts - get yourself a fine plastic inner tube from a fax paper roll. Cut it about 4" long.With a bit of practise you can produce, admittedly, a much weaker call of varying ages but it works fine during the rut when the beasts are working on half a brain - and that half secured between their rear legs. A 'young' call will bring forth an approach for investigation. A more mature call might bring forth rapid reprisal at the trot so ensure that you ARE carrying a rifle and that you are prepared to shoot the animal you are teasing as a suitable cull.

    I was once chased off the hill by a cheesed-off stag after teasing him. It was a downhill run. I didn't habe a rifle but I didn't fall - 'Not sure I was touching the ground either, but what saved me was that the old fellow didn't want to leave his girls for too long and was satisfied to chase me off. I never repeated that game.
    Opinions often differ according to unknown circumstances.
