I have a stand where I hunt over a very thick sapling thicket. Rattling works great for me, but usually brings in small bucks most often in my experience. I rattle all throughout October. First buck I ever shot with a bow came in to a rattle bag.

I also use grunt calls. Sometimes solo, sometimes I couple it with rattling. The past 2 years I have dropped bucks that came in to a grunt tube.

Can calls work great when bucks are looking for hot does. I use it with doe estrous wafers and have shot a few bucks that came in with the call...and used the wafer to position the deer where I can shoot it.
