Default Rattle Bags or Rattle Horns

Does anyone know what the preference would be for using rattle bags or rattle horns?

I' m with Skeeter...why use something synthetic when you can use the real thing?

I think that the bag is the way to go, go for convenience

both work well. It' s more fun to use the real antlers but the bags are much easier to pack.

Only the real thing. Just doesn' t sound like two Ohio brutes fighting it out otherwise.

I have had success using real antlers and this year successfully called in a buck with the rattle bag. It' s definitely a heck of a lot more convenient that real antlers and, with practice, can sound authentic.
