Rattling ( when is it good to rattle in rifle season?)

I like to use a tarsal gland while rattling. They circle downwind and expect to smell what they are hearing. I like to rattle just prior to the peak of the rut and again just prior to the (second cycle, the week after thanksgiving here).
I think doe calls (soft grunts, contact grunts) work all the time. They call bucks and does. I give a soft grunt or two all day long every time I hunt, every 20 to 30 minutes.
