YEAH, I ALSO THINK ITS GREAT NEW YORK HAS A POPULATION OF PIGS WE CAN NOW HUNT. WAS LOOKING FOR AN AREA IN NEW YORK WHERE I CAN GUN FOR THEM, FOUND ONLY ONE PRESERVE, NOT TOO MUCH INTO PRESERVE HUNTS, WANTED TO HUNT BOAR ON PUBLIC LAND. JUST HOPE THEY SHOW UP IN THE CATSKILL REGION SOON, GREENE, SULLIVAN COUNTIES. I HUNT DEER WITH A MARLIN 1895 45-70, THINK THATS PERFECT FOR PORKERS!!
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...
