    Calf distress and lost calf both work very well. I tend to lean towards the lost calf sounds as they have produced more regularly. I did call an entire heard in with the distress one evening but that isn't the norm. I have called in several that either I shot or one of my hunters shot with the lost calf. To make my lost calf sounds I use a Sleezy. Be careful if your picky on animal size though as many times a calf will be the first to run in.

I am going to have to get out into the mountains and give this tactic a try and see how it works.
    mule deer are curious, they will come in to most anything, If there is not a lot of pressure on them.. not every time of coarse but I often have them come in when I am calling coyotes with a rabbit distress call.
