I know there are several big bucks on this farm but I haven't seen them on my trail cam yet. I'm thinking about moving the camera soon to see if I can't get some of these big boys on camera. I've seen these big bucks and I've videotaped several as well. I'm just waiting to get a couple of the big boys on the trail camera.
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...
