    I rattle pre-rut. Once the rut hits, I don't think the bucks listen and I think it can scare does. And I want does hanging around as bait. ;)

    I rattled in and killed a 6 point opening morning. I dont think you can make to much noise its a fight and they really get after each other. First deer I ever rattled in and I have tried a bunch with no results.

    Not a fan of it. I have tried to pull two shooters in range last week. Both of them turned the trotted off.

    in the past week and a half i have rattled in 4 different bucks. all have different reactions. watch when your down wind side because your big mature bucks will circle around you and hold tight on your down wind side. your younger bucks will come running in from all corners lol. they are young and dumb and looking for a fight. toss in a few tending grunts and some deep roars along with some doe bleats and your mixing a deadly cocktail! hope this helps. also dont be afraid to make noise and use some scents.

    I tried it the first time Monday morning with no luck. I grabbed my babies rattle which made him mad and I shook it all morning but nothing came in,I just don't understand what went wrong!

    I've rattled in more does than I have bucks this year but did rattle in a decent 8 pt about two weeks ago.

    I grunted and canned in 3 different bucks on Sunday.

    depends on the brand and color of the rattle!!!! Blues seem to work better on the bucks!
