Anyone heard of or use the " extinguisher deer call" ? This call looks awesome, and is a bunch of calls all in one, I checked out the web page and there was a video on it. Reason I ask is caz my dad ordered me one for my birthday, and yeah the sales video's on every item makes them out to be the best, so I thought surely one or two of you have one an could offer some input. Guess with only a few days of deer season left, I'll have all summer to lean to work it befor early bow next year.
Just a tip. Don't worry as much about practicing with the call as you should about learning about deer vocalization. Making the right call at the right time is far more important than making it correctly. Deer don't shout, they whisper and they don't walk around the woods bleating and grunting and chirping and clicking. Whitetails do not vocalize like elk or turkeys and there are nmore than 13 different sounds they make and they all mean something different. The sound may mean to entirely different things when accompanied by a foot stomp. Body language changes many of the vocal sounds and in my opinion is far more important to understand than the difference between a cohesive bleat and maternal bleat...if there even are such things.
Do some studying. You can make the most perfect tending grunt in the world and it is useless if made at the wrong time or to the wrong deer. I first began studying whitetail vocalization over 20-years ago. Today I almost never carry a call simply because too many other hunters do.
I agree 100%, it is vitle to learn the deer and how they use their sounds. That is the sole reason I have my pet turkey, is learning their daily response to weather, all their vocals, and I must say I have learned more than I ever thought I would had from them, and yep it's helped me put many more birds in the freezer too. but when the time comes to use the call,
But back to the call, I also think it takes practice to learn to work a call correct, anyone can grab a call and make noise with it, so it's just as important to call correctly (if your going to use one) as it is to learn when to use it.
