depends on what you are hunting and what you think is reasonable. that being said brokenarrowoufitters hunts deer and turkeys in NE & KS. 1 bird in NE is about $950. i hunted there in may 2009 with friend and we got 4 birds. they have rights to big ranches with lots of game. saw hundreds of turkeys [mirriams] in 2 days
and these birds are lightly hunted. saw a lot of whitetails and mulies also but of course did not hunt them. the price is higher. close to 3 grand unless bow hunting then about 2 grand. bullseye outfitters's Russ Walker is a broker for these guys. there is a website for bullseye.
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...
