Re: Rattling devices

Real. I have played with the other options and they are great for portability, but to me, they sound cheap

Spilled blood on our hands fuels reverence for our quarry.

Re: Rattling devices

I've had decent luck with a rattle bag.I used to have this devise called a rattle cage.It was a little heavy and bulky but it was easy to use and sounded good.I had great luck with that until it broke.

Re: Rattling devices

I like the Knight and Hale Rack Pack. Small, easy to carry, the deer seem to like the sound of it.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Rattling devices

I had a bag but was never very confident in it. In my opinion nothing is as good as the real thing

I believe in God, family and fair dealings.

Re: Rattling devices

I made my own bag rattle. Used some round hardwood dowels, cut some walnut and mahogahany scraps I had into 3/4" squares 8-9 inches long. Cut some of the squares 45 degrees to make triangles. Had some scrap soft deerhide,made a bag . Mix up the wood pieces till you get a sound you like. Works well ,cost almost nothing. Shot a real nice 130" buck 2 years ago , came in snortin and drooling ,looking for a fight after I rattled aggressively.
