Ok here goes on this one. My hunting buddy bought one last year and did have a couple of bucks respond to it. This year I had a 10 pointer lay down 45 yards from me to sun himself, this during the rut. I call my buddy to move in and start using the call and rattle bag. The buck raised his head several times but failed to respond to the set up. Does it work? I think like most items works sometimes but nothing works everytime. At some point you just end up with too many gagets in your overflowing bag.
