WTH. The book says a new law requires me to buy a hunting license before I apply for a draw hunt. So will licenses be available before the 1 April license year begins, or do I have to wait until after April 1st to apply?
Ok, I see the refund part, but I didn't know we could buy next years license early. I think, or thought, that in the olden days, if you bought a license in March it would expire the end of March. You couldn't buy the next years until after the 1st of April.
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...
