Decided on ditching my public hell hole spot. I am trying a newer public spot that I have been to a couple times. Saw 13 deer close by the spot Saturday with 3 decent bucks. The question to you pros out there is the deer might be a little out of range would rattling antlers and grunts help or hurt this late in the season. Thanks for your opinions always look forward to hearing them

I wouldn’t recommend rattling this time of year but grunt calls work all season. Fawn bleats are good right now. We are actually in the middle of the yearling breeding window. I have seen numerous bucks dogging does in last week including 12 branch antlered and button bucks chasing one yearling on Saturday morning. Good luck!

Cj, You could always take the grunt tube just dont hammer away with it. Id keep the horns at home though.

Yea I agree.  No rattling   Unless you have the black rack and extinguisher grunt tube.  That works EVERY time!!

How big are those gowns?  I’m looking for a 20x16 in a blue.  Preferably waterproof!
