Well, I hate to admit that I've lost some of mine. seemed important at the time, but I was not as smart as I shouldda been. I do still have the bullets from the jumbo Georgia hog though and at some point want to marry them up with the mount, some how.
Lots of bullets lost "on the other side" and lots more never thought of. I do appreciate things now more, however. Need I elaborate??
I have a lot of them in trays on the reloading bench. I was thinking of glueing the mushroomed bullet into the mouth of the fired casing and mounting with the skull mount or shoulder mount of the deer. I think I will put the the bullet of the boar hog I killed on the nose of the skull. But for the most part, they sit in a reloading tray.
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...
