A buddy was sitting in a ground blind on public land a few years ago...where he was sitting was a bit of a pumpkin patch. Well, opening morning he hits the rattle bag a few times....and hears some rattling a hundred yards or so away in a clearing. There were a few trees blocking his view of this particular spot in the clearing. My buddy assumes another hunter let go with his own rattle bag. Later in the morning one of his new pumpkin patch pals slides out of his ground blind and proceeds to start building another blind near where the rattling was coming from. My buddy walks out around noon and wanders by the new neighbor....neighbor asks my buddy if he saw the two bucks fighting in front of him. Apparently the answered rattling wasn't another hunter joining in.Last year I started calling for the first time from my blind. Had some results of buck grunts but nothing really came into view. Does anyone have luck rattling and calling during the gun season or by that time are the bucks done fighting with each other?
that will be fine. no 2 deer make the same exact noises in the woods. your call may resemble an immature buck to a mature bucks' ears and may run right in to kick his little butt!!!!I have a cheap true talker grunt tube. Do you recommend it?
