Okay, one last question. I just sent you an email on it, but it happened again since. i wrote a second tip, and hit save at the bottom. It went to a nice page where you could read the tip and "rate" it. However, I went to "my points" and it says no points awaiting moderation. Am i doing something wrong?
No, you're not doing anything wrong. Tips and Stories do not show up in the "awaiting moderation" queue, since they are manually evaluated by the BGH editors and awarded points when they are published.
Once you click "save" it's sent to us and we can then "see" it on our end to review.
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...
