Muzzle loader season in the rear view mirror, on to Rifle season. Heading out after work today. Saturday and Sunday. Zack is there already hunting, He got there last night and set up camp for us. He forgot his real antlers at home.  S***!
I will be in My honey hole tomorrow at sunrise Rattling at about a med  light level.
This will be the same spot that I tried on My first attempt. I also have a game camera I plan to drop at the same location. I plan to rattle only once in this area. My middle Son (Carson 17) is coming with us this weekend. Wish us Luck!

The earliest I've ever had a buck respond was October 22, and small forked horn. But I rattled in and shot my largest buck on October 28th, so soon they'll start responding.

Not rattled in, sorry guys.
Weather was torrential and cold.
