One word: Rattling.

On the fifth morning of a five day hunt in northern New Mexico, I was desparate. So, I had my guide rattle some elk antlers that I had brought. Two bulls came in, and they were focused on the rattling that he was doing about 75 yards downhill from me. Long story short: Hoyt Supertec, Axis 400, Spitfire 85 grain, US Marine MARPAT woodland camo, plastic vines/leaves (Wal Mart) taped to my bow, on my knees, slight quartering away, 50-yard shot (by my range finder) right through the heart.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but it's a 5X5.

This is a nice resizing program and It's real easy to use. Just resize to under 12,500 bytes and save.
