Just wondering if anybody ever uses rattling antlers or bags around here? I have tried them very little with no luck. This this being pre and early rut, it is supposed to be the best time of deer season to call bucks in. I have some spots on blackwater and eglin where you can see a ways, since they are said to come in down wind, makes sense, I was going to try it out this weekend.

I personally have had 0 luck rattling....i think you would have better luck when you can find a spot that normally holds alot of does...the bucks will find the hot does...and if your in a spot with alot of does the bucks should be there

My teeth rattled last weekend burr!! If you never try it you will never know! Hunt aggresive and you will stay more focused. Rattle,grunt,bleat, you never know what mood that bucks in he could come a runnin. Ive killed 2 of my biggest bucks blind grunting and if i was not aggresive with it i would not have killed them! Make sure your tree has plenty of cover and thick around the bottom. When you call to a deer they hunt YOU! Good Luck

I have never tried rattling but I do use a grunt call. It works good as long as you don't overdo it or use to deep of a call.
