I have had great success and not so great. I use grunts and rattling/clashing trying to break antlers also. Kick leaves and brush. More noise the better. The deer do have to be in an aggressive mood. We can't control that.

I've killed several that I rattled in in KS and TX. No luck anywhere else i've hunted. The grunt tube is far superior for me.

WOW ! Terry what a memory, that's fantastic. Now I can understand a little more of your personality. I think that's the best memory that I've heard someone talk about. I don't think that one can be matched. Good luck on your hunting this year.

I've only rattled in does. Shot two of them (pre-trad). I think a spike came looking on one of them, but from a different direction. No antlered bucks.

I had a farm in northern MO that I hunted for 28 years until it was sold last year. I rattled in multiple bucks there every year. Around my place a few miles outside of St. Louis , I try rattling every year cause I know it can work. I'll manage to rattle one in every 5 or 6 years. I think the main thing is deer population and ratio of bucks to does.

I rattled up 9pnt yesterday. Didn't shoot already filled my tag. I was just checking out an area. Most years I will rattle in a few bucks. Usually I only rattle if I see they're not going to come my way. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. If they take the bait it usually brings them right in close. I use a grunt call with rattling. The small bucks will sometime leave, especially with the grunting. The does don't seem to pay it much mind. You want to be really careful if on the ground because they're coming in looking.
