Just take a rabbit distress call and blow it very softly. It will replicate the fawn distress. If you need a call, check the classified, I've some there that will work well. I've used them and called in does that are very mad!

I don't think it makes a difference they are very similar, I've called in does using jackrabbit distress. Just remember you can't use an e-caller to call in and shoot deer.

What are you trying to call in? If coyotes, it will not matter whether it's a blacktail or whitetail distress sound. We've called in & slayed a coyote with the whitetail sound in a strictly mule deer area.

i am trying to call in bear and am aware of the rules regarding electronic calls. looking for a mouth call. i listened to a whitetail and a blacktail on a friends electronic caller and there is a noticable difference. i took a bear during archery season that a buddy called in with a blacktailed fawn distress call and it was the biggest rush i have ever had. beats jumping out of a plane. he doesn't remember where he got the call but told me he has had better luck than with the whitetail call which he gave me. thanks, nate

If I knew what a blacktail distress sounded like I could probably tune an open reed to match it but I don't really have time to work on calls now. If you can't find what you're looking for let me know and I will see what I can come up with.

I really don't think a bear is going to sit back and say "That's a whitetail, and we don't have them in this country. Must be some hunter trying to fool me. I don't think I'll go for it though." Come on, if it sounds at all like a fawn in distress, it will work just as well, whether "whitetail" or "blacktail" or "mulie" or whatever.

Animals dont have the capacity to reason like that. Distress is Distress, and predators will come and check it out.

still would like to have a distress call from a blacktail or muley. i won't put a sticker of a whitetail on my truck but it's still a deer. i am not trying to say this works or this doesn't, i would just like to have the call if it exists. if someone here can point me in the right direction or get me one(let me know how much) it would be greatly appreciated. thanks guys, Nate.

A fawn sounds pretty much the same as a rabbit. The baaaa is just a little longer . But what others said preds do not care. Your not going to do this alone up there are you.?
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.
