I hunted down south of H-ville for the past several years. The rut won't kick off good until the week of Christmas. You'll some youngsters doing a little chasing in early December.

Along about mid-December you should have some bucks (mostly younger) respond to rattling. If you decide to give a try, I'd do it away from my primary hunting locations and I wouldn't get too crazy with it. Maybe just tickle 'em a little.

I'm certainly no expert on the area or rattling for that matter. Last year I had very little success with rattling. I had much better success with a grunt tube. The year before we had really good results from rattling and grunt tube.

That's why suggest experimenting away from your primary hunting locations. Good luck.
