around my area i would guess about a 1:2 or 1:3 buck to doe ratio, so i have had some success, but is is limited. When i did, it was in the heat of the rut around midday.

I prefer rattleing as a pre-rut tactic and up to the prime peak rut days. Then I switch to grunt tube and estrus scent.

The first time I tried it (pre rut), I had a buck making a beeline straight to my stand 5 mins after the sequence. He stopped 5 yds from my tree. I found out later that that was not the norm in the woods I hunt. The bucks here generally will walk away quickly when confronted by the oppertunity to meet another buck.

I have not had that kind of success since.

I can relate to the conveneince of a bag but I think I prefer real horns. matter of fact, I really would like to get a new set soon. like maybe 10 pts.
