I personally think it's too early. I don't use them until the third week of October. I could be wrong though, maybe they'll investigate a grunt call, but I think it's too early to rattle.
This has worked for me too. Light tickling.If you use them, use them lightly, just tink the antlers, don't clash them together. Use soft grunts and sparringly. It can be a good tool if you use them like a light sparring match with young bucks.
