No, I went to the other end of the state down by Ennis, area 330.Drew an elk tag down there about 3 years ago,all I saw were moose,been down a few more times to see my sis,and go fishing and I seem to bump in to alot of moose,about 3-4 a day.Mostly young bulls 25-30in spreads,see on dandy about 40in.But I have hunted up on the yakk and the kootine other side of Troy up on Kilbrenen,and way up Callahan.
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...
