The link below will give you the state record data for both typical and non-typical whitetail deer in Tennessee. About ten years ago the state record for M/L was killed in Montgomery County, but I do not know if that deer still stands. From articles I've read in the past, Ft Campbell has still got several deer among the largest ever harvested in Tennessee. (for those who don't know, Ft. Campbell, Ky., is more than 2/3rds located in Tennessee. The post's post office lies across the Kentucky border, however)
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...
