Rick White’s reply:

I like to put my tree stands about 20 feet off the ground. However, I have shot deer from as high as 6 feet off the ground. I think every hunter has a comfort level of how high they want to be. I would say that somewhere between 16-20 feet would be good in most cases.

As far as calling too much or too little, it depends on the situation. One thing I don’t do is call to a deer that is looking in my direction. Get his attention and if he starts to walk away, call again. I like to rattle and grunt a lot during the pre rut and rut. Try calling a lot and a little and see what works best in the area you are hunting. Good luck hunting.
