    I live in west-central wisconsin and am already starting to find a ton of scrapes and rubs on some property i can hunt. This is usually earlier than i would try to aggressively rattle. If i'm finding scrapes and rubs is it a good idea to start rattling considering there's a territorial buck in the area?

    Absolutely! If you have reason to believe there's a dominant buck living in your hunting area, then rattling/calling is a very good idea.

      I wouldn't aggressively rattle throughout the day, but maybe once or twice in the morning/right before dark.

        after finding that kind of sign I WOULD DO NOTHING TO alert that or any other buck,it's still early,find a travel corridor and wait, silence is golden

          I would try a few light, shallow grunts. Im finding scrapes and rubs too, but i find them every year around this time. I usually start having success rattling during the week of halloween through november, but you never know. I dont think it will hurt you trying to rattle...I have heard bucks tickle their antlers while sparing prior to the rut.

            Long slide w optic cut would cool, but for more general, might go Gov model.
            May just start w a Ruger 1911.
