When Is The Best Time To Rattle For Whitetail

deer?

When you’re hunting whitetail deer, the best time to rattle is at dusk or before dawn. Rattled corn attracts all kinds of wildlife including whitetail deer and other ungulates such as elk and mule deer. Of course, if there are no other hunters in the area it’s possible that they will ignore your rattling because they know that you could be a competitor. They also might avoid areas where their scent has been disturbed by another hunter passing by during daylight hours. However, this can change quickly after dark when most predators are active on the hunt for food. This means that rattling at dusk makes sense if there are others nearby since these animals would be looking for an easy meal later in the night!
