Default rattling

Hey guys,
This weekend I will be heading up to deer hunt. I will be hunting near the MN, Canada border near Orr. I'm hunting a clear cut on some trails that lead from their bedding area. I was wondering if it would help if I did some rattling. I will take either a doe or buck, so I was wondering if it will scare anything away, or draw them in. thanks

At this time of the season rattling will draw them in so go ahead and rattle away.

I'm hunting MN and I grunted in an 8-pointer on Saturday so I would consider that as well. Haven't tried rattling yet though.

Since two of my fellow great Minnesotan's contributed, so will I. I think that during the rut, rattling will likely only help and not hurt, especially if you want a buck over a doe? I also agree with grunting for a buck, and I also have had some decent success bleating in does as well on several occassions. Good luck home boys and to all you other hunting folk!
