Thought I would show you this clip of one of a buck we called in Hampshire the weekend. My mate Mat was doing the shooting and I was doing the calling on this one.
As a novice Roe caller I doubt I was using the call correctly but it seemed to work ok.
Wayne, i havent had the pleasure of holding something in my pocket at the same time as a camera, but i have developed a technique of using the call in my pocket with the rifle on the bipod. it must look like i found a wormhole
Xim I wouldn't take it that that is the correct way to do it
One buck last weekend responded to little squeaks but with the last buck I shot I had to nearly stamp up and down on the call to get him to even think about coming in and then he stopped at 100 yds and lost interest.
What seems to work for me is too start quiet and then get louder until I get a reaction.
We got a couple of roe on our pig ground and we shot a roe this year at Peterchurch. I got quite a few on my ground the other side of Leominster and a couple of months ago I had a young buck run down the road in front of me right by work so getting more
I normally call them a "buck" but the one Mat shot with the sh*ts last weekend he called a **/-**/./*;'/*'@ little stinking */@/**@;,<* or something like that
We have seen a roe buck near monmouth over a year ago, lamping at the time but not seen since, we had some near our fallow ground but someone took over the shooting in a near by wood and no roe no more
You must have been doing something right mate for that buck to come in, keep doing it that way.
When i have called them in before, mine have been slightly longer beeps, but i think they will come to almost any type of beep as they are that fired up and filled with adrenilin that they just want a sh*g.
