rattling?

OK well have a question what's the best thing to rattle with. I don't like using antlers because of a quick release and I'm looking for something that sounds realistic. I got the black rack thinking hmm its two sets it might sound good and be easy with a quick release I was wrong. Need some suggestions.

Re: rattling?

i use the real thing. tie them together & hang them on a hook. i hang mine by one of the eyegaurds, you can hang them up quickly, and they can't bang into each other.

A quick release is what you hook to your d loop on your bow to draw back and fire.

Re: rattling?

Been using a HS rattle bag for years . I rattle in atleast five Jr six bucks a year sometimes more. They sound realistic and stow easily. I hang it on a branch or hook beside my stand. I don't start till about Halloween give or take a couple days if there is a good cold snap. Frosty mornings seem best but have rattled plenty in evenings too.

Re: rattling?

I turn my wrist strap around so release is out of the way on the back of my hand while I rattle. Hang up the bag, turn it back around. No need to remove it.

Re: rattling?

Cut the brow tine off as it will make packing them easier and won't smash your fingers when really clashing them together.

Re: rattling?

I use the real thing from a big shed i found in Kansas, I have smacked a finger a time or two.

The older I get the better I was.

Re: rattling?

x2 on turning your release around and then rattling. I have a small set, not real big, easy to throw in the pack. They have worked in the past.
