Does anybody know where I can find an audio or video recording of a deer "clicking" (glottal pulse)? I have searched and cannot find any recordings, and most all of the written material comes from our own bowriter.

I want to confirm that what I heard throughout the day on Saturday was deer clicking. I was hunting a swamp stand in REALLY thick stuff (cannot see the ground at all in many places) interspersed with narrow openings and lanes (dry oxbows/creek beds). From about 10:30 a.m. to 3 or 4 p.m. I heard clicking series off and on coming from thick areas, sometimes in one patch, later in another. Sometimes it would last for a few seconds, sometimes longer; someimes I wouldn't hear it for half an hour, sometimes every few minutes. A few times, I even thought it must have been two different deer because it came from opposite directions in such a short span of time. However, the only deer I saw was a lone doe that a duck hunter jumped out of a canebreak near sunrise.

The sound was the same one I have always atributed to a buck tending a doe, but there was so much of it for so long without me ever spotting a deer that now I am questioning the source.

I appreciate it if anyone can link or send me a recording of deer clicking/glottal pulse, or a call that mimicks it.

I saw/heard one doing it in Cades Cove several years ago. It was weird and wild. He was chasing a doe and she used us as a pic in a field. Only time that I have witnessed it.
Can't help on video/audio though.

If it sounded like the clicking of a grunt but without the low pitched voice of a grunt, and was in swampy area as you said, my money is on upland chorus frogs. I was hunting a low area by a lake and the occasional chorus frog would click a couple times here and there. It would get me because I thought it was a grunt at first, but the frogs have a high pitched resonance ascending in pitch. Wait till February when thy are screaming in full swing, very loud for a frog that's less than an inch long.

Highly unlikely it is frogs. Either deer or cougars. Once you hear it, you will recognize it immediately. If youo have ever heard elk clicking (they do it often), just about the same. Click your thumb nail over a large comb tooth. Very close.

lol. I know what a chorus frog sounds like and when you hear one clicking by itself it almost sounds like a buck grunt at first. I just heard em this weekend. With the amount of frogs in some swamp there must be a few booners in there....

Catman, the clicking sounds nothing like a grunt at all. It sounds like a click. A tree frog can make a sound similar to a doe grunt with a clicking sound. But it is nothing like that.

I don't mean treefrogs. They sound nothing like upland chorus frogs. The bucks grunting I have heard had a sort of clicking grunt but you could hear the deeper tones that you don't in the frogs. The clicking is not the same in the frogs and deer, but just slightly resembling in certain cases like when I was hunting the thick bottom land past weekend.

I feel like this is getting too complicated... Just saying what the OP described sounded just like the frogs I heard while hunting over the weekend.
