My 13yo son got it done within the first 30 minutes on our first sit. Nov 8th, rattled a couple times and he came running in.  My son made the 80yrd shot and his hunt was over.
Awesome! Got any pics?

Here is a picture of my son's buck that we rattled in last friday

I have only attempted to rattle for blacktails with no luck. I will be trying for whitetails this late bow season in 178.

I had a very short hunt today that was fortunately blessed with success.  I want to thank 3nails, as I always do, for his insight and experience, and his willingness to share his knowledge with other hunters.  I want to do the same for others on down the line! 

To make a long story short, I worked a few very densely forested draws with "quick sets"- not even sitting down, but standing behind a tree and rattling.  Less than an hour after starting my hunt, a buck came to TEN yards, and stood there while I carefully let the rifle (Savage Model 16 .243, Federal PowerShok Copper bullets) drop down into an aiming position.  He ran about 70 yards, and fell on a forest road that happened to lead to the main access road in a mere 80 yards. 

Meat for winter, memories for a lifetime, and even some antlers for the wall.  A successful hunt on a sunny, perfect North Idaho afternoon.

Thanks Bone!  Those are both studs, would love to have one of them walk under my stand.  Are you seeing these deer near Selah?  Wow nice whitetails, especially that bigger guy, he looks old.

Thank you. No, traveling NE.  There are a couple whitetails near Selah but not enough to invest any time in.   Just seeing one is kind of a rarity.
