Hi and welcome.
How is the deer population around Johnstown? Is the hunting good in that area? I was recently invited to hunt a farm 20 miles North West of Johnstown and I was told the hunting is great. I haven't seen the land yet.
Enjoy the forum....lots of good info here!
I happen to find this forum, and I like it very much. I live in Johnstown Pennsylvania, I'm a 26 year old woman, and I like to hunt and fish.
Hello. I like it very much myself. Im from New Jersey and a 36 year old female. Never had any luck with deer hunting but went to Maine in August of this year and shot a 373 lb Black Bear! Here are 2 of my posts showing my bear
Pics are different in both.
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...
