I use these on my 308's and shotgun's. I find for where I hunt they work great.Used peeps untill my eyes could't pick up the bead I wear bifocals. These are great for dogging real quick up to 200 yds work good.
Nice to hear that you like Aimpoint, that is a Swedish scope. It is quite widely used here and very appreciated when hunting in a environmental that has little space and requires fast shooting i.e. wild bore hunting. Which model is your favorite?
There can be too much of a good thing with antler rattling.
I like to hit the horns together for a good 30- to 40-second rattling sequence and then hang them up and resist the urge to hit them again.
This works to the hunter's advantage, because if a buck has heard it, he may have been 300 or 400 yards away and he comes in and he's not exactly sure where it came from.
When finally is time to rattle again throw a slight change-up into the routine.
The second time, don't rattle as loud...
