My kids drew youth hunt Oct 2-6th 2010. I am looking for information on where to scout. My daughter (13) can make the whole hunt but my son (14) will only have the first 3 days cause he will be at NMMI. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
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...
