First, I hope everybody got to see as many deer today as what was here. This morning got to see two of the regular 8's fight under my feeder. No shot on those two, too young. Was in the blind this evening at 4:00, decided hey try to rattle again, aint had any luck so far this year. Hit em for about a minute and a half, and saw horns above the tall grass coming straight to the blind at about 50 yds. This bad boy was wanting to fight, he came in so fast and was 20 yds from me like, blink. He would not stop for nothing, well he came in and left in about 2 minutes, gone. In about 5 minutes my feeder goes off, and 3 point spike comes in quick. To say the least that poor spike paid the price, the big buck was after him quick. The buck I rattled was one i aint never seen. A 12 pointer with split catchers. Theres always tomorrow!!!

Rattling in a buck is thrilling, doesn't last long and doesn't always end in a kill, but thrilling none the less.

Exciting as calling in a bull elk, or a tom during Spring to me.

Daniel 1381 I use the flextone, I rattle for about a minute to minute half, like stx says he does, then use the grunt call, wait bout the same. Kenny, he would not stop, he was really looking for a fight.
