I have news for you... That might be the world record (Archery) 6 point!!! A six pointer was shot by my place last fall that scored in the 150's and is the new archery 6 point record. Rumor has it that Cabelas gave the hunter $20,000 for the mount. I saw the buck 1st hand at the Madison deer and turkey show. Here is a pic, yours looks bigger.
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...
