I was up there scouting a couple days ago, Got a Bull Moose permit myself this year ( Very first time and I have been entering he Lottery up here for years)Good Luck. Hope we all get some meat in the Freezer this year. Ill have it all scented up with Harmon Moose Scents, you can smell that stuff for miles. What Lat/Long are you planning on hunting? Capt Walt
Good luck! My Maine hunt was last year. I did not draw a moose tag this year so I'll be hunting at home in NY state. What zone did you draw in? Maybe I can pass along something useful if you are in zone 4.
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...
