maybe doe bleats but definitely no buck grunts or rattling. FOOD is the key in the post rut for does and bucks to fatten up for winter. that's where you'll see the secondary rut take place. just my opinion.

but, if the does are in the 30 day secondary rut then an estrus scent just might bring in big daddy. Rut is rut whether it's primary or secondary. Food, cover, travel routes, bed areas. Deer are switching to winter survival mode here in the midwest.
