I have one with an angled eye piece that i use at the range and it is okay as I can sit it on the table and look through it standing,but the one issue I have is that I think it is harder to line it up where I want it.
Not sure, but think a straight one would be easier to line up wiht the target.
Why do prone shooters use them? I would think if you're in a prone position a straight one would be easier to use?
I have both, I spend alot of time scouting and range work and have taken to perfering the angled peice when scouting(sitting glassing across a Mountain) and the straight one for at the bench but the angled peice works fine there to.
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...
