David Ridenour (1/2/2008)I've never tried rattling but I imagine it would be a real rush seeing them react and rush in.
Yeah, that was a huge rush of a<SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-bidi-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language: EN-US; mso-fareast-language: EN-US; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA">drenaline...very cool to watch him come to me as oppose to me looking for him. I had a bad case of Buck Fever when I shot him...a good memory I won't forget.

I'm not an expert, but I think the timing is key to success with rattling (at least in the deep south).

heartofdixie-

you hit it right on the head there. this arguement comes up time and time again. if you shoot immature bucks, you wont see mature ones. it's that simple. and i am expecting some stormy weather with this next comment, but there is all of maybe 5 people on this hunting forum who shoot MATURE bucks. and i dont wanna hear the "oh well we arent all so lucky to have private land" cuz that is horseshit too. i haveseen plenty of beautiful bucks taken off public land (mainly in magazines)....they're just smarter than the hunters pursuing them.

Great deer!:bowdown That will make a pretty scull mount. I've rattled up a few bucks but they've all been small. Guess they just came to watch the fight.

The last 3 bucks I've killed were aged 4 1/2, 4 1/2, and 3 1/2. I passed 5 different 8 points last year, and have passed 3 8 points this year b/c they were too young to kill. Unfortunatly the bull dyke on the property bordering us shoots every buck she sees (I've alsoseen her kill 2 spotted fawns).Last year I saw a 1 1/2 year old 8 point 3 times, and was MAJOR pumped about his potential. She shot him the lastmorning of the season after 2 other people had seen him chasing a doe and passed on him. (she shot it 1.5 miles from wherehe was first seen).Nothing that can be done about her.

Here are some shots of a deer I managed to photo after putting a camera out for a week. We have mature deer, heartofdixies are a little bigger, and he aparently sees them when he hunts.

That there is some yellow gold!!!

That camera is in an area that is 100% impenetrable and is completely unhuntable. Since nobody is able to get in there to hunt it, I feel A-OK throwing a bit of corn out. Guess thats why there are more bucks in the photos I get from it then there are does.



And I'm pretty sure the 80 lbs of corn I threw out is no comparison to dump truck of corn that shows up twice a month for the folks that have property across the street from us.

FYI!!
There is a guy at DG&amp;K Deer Processors on Hwy 41 between Brewton and the Interstate that does the skull mounts several different ways and does the horns on the plack. He only charges $50 for just the skull (European mount) mount. He does a good job too.
Their # is 251-867-7448.
Phil, that's who I use to make my summer sausage, jerky and Snack Sticks. If you haven't tried his snack sticks and like beef jerky, you NEED to try that...that stuff is beyond FINE !! I actually just got off the phone with Danny, Danny and Keith do a FINE job on everything they do, I've been using them a couple of years now and have been MORE than satisfied.

Hey Heart, we're in the same neighborhood as you. We've got 1400 acres that we lease from Cedar Creek Land &amp; Timber that owns Why Not. Our main road is the northern access to Why Not off of CR 27 near L pond. Our camp is about 1 mile south of CR6on CR27 about 1/2 mile from our lease. This is our fourth year with the land and we have killed a couple nice deer and passed on many young bucks. No doubt that is the only way to kill a deer like yours, which is a greatdeer.It's crazy how big Why Not is. I hunted there one time and drove 22 miles to get to my stand without leaving the property. Here's our best from last year, a nine point.

Damn good buck right there! We're blessed with some pretty good deer around us. Be patient, their out there.

Yeah, I know where you're located. I grew-up in Brewton, AL, so I know that whole area real well. The north end of WhyNot Rd is our western boundary...thats acouple milesto the east from you.

My family and the families that own WhyNot/Cedar Creek Land&amp;Timber(McMillan &amp; Miller) are good family friends, so I know what you mean about WhyNot. I've been previledged to hunt out there many times over the years (and their other camps). Great piece of land out there...and yes, its HUGE...I think its about 70,000 acres of private managed hunting (yes 70,000).

Good Luck...Our rut is coming soon!

Heart, my friend who shot this buck is Tom McMillan's step son. We've had the privelage of hunting their Dozier camp annually for almost twenty years. We hunt Jay Villa pretty regularly as well. Our camphouse is on CR27 a little before you get to the dirt road that takes you down to L pond. Its the first house on the right just past the big open cow pasture on the right. We'll be up this weekend. If you're in the area stop in and havea beer with us. Bring somemoney and we'll let you leave it on the poker table. :letsdrink
