thanks for the info. But don't get the wrong idea, I'm not out in the woods blowing my horn and rattling away like a lunatic trying to get the dog back in the house.
Just nice and mellow, only once every 30-45 minutes. Then I sit and wait as quietly and motionless as possible. One thing I forgot to mention was that it has been unseasonably warm, like in the 70's when it's normaly in the 40's and 50's. Hoping that has a little to do with it. I will definitely take your advise next time out though, scents and rattles stay at home. As far as timing, I've sat up in the tree all day from dark til dark.Which reminds me, what's the best practice as far as relieving those bodily functions. For some reason you never read or hear anything about that. I've got 15' stand, don't really want to go any higher than that.
NEXT! GOOD STUFF! Keep it coming
