Antler Rattle

Tie antlers to a long piece of cord for this deer-season trick.Justin Appenzeller

Some of the best hunting and fishing tips that appear in Field & Stream each month don’t come from the editors or writers—they come from you, our readers. Here’s one for rattling antlers during deer season.

Tie antlers to a long piece of cord and lower them from your treestand. When you rattle them, the noise will sound near to the ground to cruising bucks, and the setup will help minimize movement in your stand. It's worked for me. —James Tidwell, via Facebook
