Inbwhntr, I was guessing Indiana due to your name for Indiana Bow Hunter but you never know for sure. Spend about 6 months at Fort Ben Harrison back in 95 but never got thye chance to hunt during that time. Good luck on your trip out here this year and if you have any questions let us know as I am sure someone on this site can answer it for you..
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...
