Looks good Robk! Florida season opened today and it was a pretty good one from what we saw. The shooting was fast and furious but we were done by 7:00 so we had to pick up. There were enough birds that we could pass up the longer shots which makes for a lot less cripples and loss birds.
Sure wish we had some of those geese down here in central Florida!!
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...
