WE have 12 elk preference points and looking for a decent unit to hunt,we are all in our mid 50s in fair shape but not great shape.I know we do not have enough points for the great units,but would appreciate any help.(rifle or Muzzle).thanks
yes we do research, we were thinking of muzzleload units 66 or 67.just thought I might get a little more help.(some areas we may not have thought of). 12 years ago we hunted unit 10,all four of us filled our tags but we will never see 10 again.Is unit 66 or 67 better?thanks again for any additional help
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...
