I'm going to be moving to the Fayetteville area(military) in June and was wondering if anyone could give me some help with where to hunt and fish and possible make acouple of friends that hunt and fish. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
I live south west of Raleigh (Holly Springs), and there are some great places to fish around here (Jordan Lake, Harris Lake). Aren't there places to hunt around the base? A buddy of mine is a biologist stationed at Bragg and he finds tons of hunting stuff on Federal lands around there. I bet you will come across some decent spots.
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...
