Excellent video!  Thanks for posting.

Maybe I missed it but which way was the wind blowing?  I.e. In your face on the rattling stand? At your back? from one side or the other, uphill or down?

Man that is beautiful open country. 

 
This was an evening hunt and the thermals were dropping. That's why I was mostly focused on across and up the ridge. A couple hours before this, when they were still rising, I had a buck come in from above me and blow up the whole mountainside when he smelled me.  :chuckle:

Yes but I'm not nearly as successful with blacktails.  :DOH:

 I really appreciate the fact that this has either encouraged or helped some of you. Since I'm not tech savvy it takes me longer than most to create and post things. Your comments have made it worthwhile.  :hello:

First - thank you for posting the rattling video.  I just started attempting this year for blacktail in SW WA.  No luck yet but no issue with continuing to try. 

One question if you don't mind answering - what is the call you used at the beginning of your sequence?  I don't have any calls.  I was just using an old set of antlers to rattle but would like to up my game if possible.

Thank you

Thank you!  Excellent info, good of you to share such tactics learned by long experience!

I've rattled in a number of small to medium racked whitetails, but only one really BIG buck (that I know about anyway :))  You are exceptionally good at rattling in big ones!  Bravo!

  The first call was just your standard issue estrus bleat can. The grunt tube was a new one for me that I'm very pleased with. I've had several Primos tubes but this one is very soft. The most realistic sounding one I've ever used.

I still have your tutorial video from 6 or so years ago saved in my YouTube and have watched it multiple times. Nice work.

I sure do appreciate all these rattling posts. Been reading them for years and You got me and now my boy hooked. I've rattled in a few blacktails and several whitetails. Took my boy over for the first time this year to idaho and rattled his buck in and now that's all he wants to do  :chuckle: I rattled in my cousins buck also and his came crashing in snorting up a storm and he took him at 15yds!
