    what works better during the rut, a rattle bag or a grunt?

  • #2
    That's kinda like asking which fishing lure works best. It all depends on the buck. I've personally had more luck w/grunting than rattling, but I know several people who would say the exact opposite.

        On public land neither, with the hunting pressure that just tells'em where to avoid

          Use both, and a bleat can. I've had success even on public land.

              rattle bag with you on the ground adding thrashing in the leaves then followed before your fake fight and after with a couple scattered doe bleats.

                I only rattle if a deer is far away and grunt if a deer is close so to answer your questions, yes.

                  I like to tie all the calls together. I prefer a set of shed for rattling over the rattle bags. I like to use several grunt calls and bleat cans. I have good luck sounding like a group of deer.

                          I do feel sorry for those rookie cops on the scene who had their backs to the brutality being committed by their senior officer.

                          Body cam footage shows Floyd wasn't murdered. The cop kneeling on his neck might have been negligent, but his actions did not kill Floyd.
