Well my big weekend was almost just ruined. I was out playing basketball during lunch. We were down 4-0 then I made 3 of 4 baskets to tie it up and on the way down from my tying shot....landed on my right foot wrong and down I went. ,) ,) Rolled an ankle but luckily I didnt have all my weight on it. Looks like Ill be OK in a few days. Ive done this so many times Id be surprised if I had anything holding my ankle together. It really sucks being 25 and cant do what I like to do because of so many ankle injuries. I guess I have to retire from those type of activities. Atleast Ill still be able to go bear hunting.
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...
