Those look very cool, but I was wandering also when you use them ? Are they for when you are hunting, or maybe shooting at the pro shop, or tournaments ? The reason why I ask is, because you never want to leave your bow for long periods of time setting on that bottom limb. It definately can damage your bow if you leave it for long priods of time.
They are primarly just to be used for hunitng from a ground blind. I guess you could use them at the range also, but ground blind for the most psrt....up in Wyoming hunting antelopes the ground can get pretty nasty and keep the bow out of the muck and out of the way.
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...
