I enjoyed this one more than any because Im an avid bear hunter been doing it for 5 years now and have filled 3 of those years nothing like it. Anyone thinking about trying it should for sure its by far one of the best rushes possible and not to mention the trophy and the meat. Good luck on your hunts boys. The great thing about ontario is baiting is legal but the blackies around here are mean by nature.
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...
