I have a new lease I am leasing this year, we can not use feeders and it is to late to try to plant any greens. not in cluding all the acorns on the ground right now. I am in east texas and was looking at getting a deer caller to bring them in.
any suggestions of do's and don'ts

you can lead a deadhorse to water, but you can not make him drink

  I've never hunted Texas so I don't know how the deer there react to calling.  I've tried it and have come to the conclusion that,at least for me where I hunt,it's best to use a call as a last resort.  In other words,if I see a deer and it's projected path doesn't seem like it's going to provide a shot,I've got nothing to lose but try a call.  How they react seems to be hit or miss. This does not refer to calling to stop a moving deer for a shot.  As far as calling them in,sight unseen I've just not had it happen for me.  I've been hunting deer for over 30yrs and I just don't find them to be as vocal as commercial advertisement/videos would have us believe.  Of course other opinions may vary.
