Real antlers are the best by far. I have a set of the fake ones too and they sound to "plastic-ie" (yeah how do you spell that one) I got a set of the primos rattle bag a week or so ago. I've rattled up a button buck and 4 does in two sittings with it. It soulds better than the plastic horns IMO. Hopefully big boy shows up next!!

I prefer a rattling bag just because it is easier to bring with, and easier to use if you have a buck near you. My bag seems to work fine, seeing as I rattled in a 109'' and a 162'' last year.

i like real antlers the best, and not just any size either, they have to be from at least a nice size 2.5 yr old or 3.5 yr old....i think some professional hunters use the bags b/c of their sponsors.....but i do think the bags work also.

i think a real set of antlers are the best. but my dad likes the bag, and we hunted the same property last nite. i could hear him rattling, and it didnt sound bad. i like how you can just tickle the tines together wit a real set though.

Rattling bag for sure, smaller and easy to carry. Have used it in last two days and rattled up seven bucks. It works great with grunts mixed with the rattling bag.

I like the bag for portability. I've rattled in one deer though so I can't say much to it's effectivness. I ended up throwing mine out because the bag and or sticks inside started to stink real bad.
