Looks like almost anything with a hook on it and attached to a line. Firearms are only allowed on private property. Real similar to Florida as they had the same firearm regulation as well. I used a rifle down there to get a pretty good one but it was on private land and I shot it in a irrigation canal. In biggger water I can see where they could be lost easily without a line attached as they sink pretty fast.
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...
