I loved the footage.Great kill on a very great long beard.That beard was huge how long was it? Now people do see how hard it is to film without help.I have been filming for ten years or longer and there is still new things I learn each time I go out.Keep up the hard work.I would love to have footage like this on my outdoor web site.
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...
