Anyone know of a good processor or butcher in the Dillon area where you can hang a carcass for a few days? I have a processor here in Denver, but with 7 tags in the group we may need a place to store an animal or three while the rest hunt.
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...
