ive found the elastic band harmonica style doe call works all season from pre to post rut.

I've only had luck pre-rut with grunts and bleats - rattling seems to spook more than attract.

Also the primos can bleating call works very well.

A couple of seasons ago I had a buck literally run to me when I used it (it was in September). Wasn't a huge buck but it worked none-the-less.

Rattling, grunts, or doe bleats just incase the bucks are cruising for an early doe
