Jim Carpenter's RATTLEMASTERS-OF-TEXAS contest is a Rattling/Video Hunting Contest. Deer hunters will challenge themselves with rattling up bucks, videoing the experience and submitting the video for entry into the "buck rattling/video contest". See video contest for instruction on how to enter.

Deer hunting in South Texas has never been more exciting. Anyone can enter our contest. Trophy hunters can now test their skills against some of the best deer rattlers out there.

Mixed Teams of Men, Women, or Youth, can enter our "Rattling/Video Contest". This is a  great competitive sport as you go against others for trophies and prizes.

How it started?

Jim Carpenter founder of Rattlemasters-of-Texas grew up in the south Texas brush country town of Freer.  He has hunted and guided in south Texas for most his life, and has been rattling bucks for over 25 years.  He started the contest after taking friends rattling in the brush country of South Texas and seeing how much they enjoyed the experience, soon they where competing against each other for the title of Rattlemaster.  The contest is now in it's third year and is accepting entries from Mexico, USA, and Canada.


Why rattle?

During the rut (breeding season) bucks fight with each other for territorial and breeding rights.  When bucks are fighting, other bucks will hear them and come running. They respond to the sound of other bucks fighting over a doe.  What you are trying to do when rattling is to imitate this fighting activity. You rattle to get the bucks to respond and come to you.


Who Can Enter the Contest? 

We will take entries from Mexico, USA, or Canada.  Just follow our rules on the video contest link, fill out the registration and mail your video and entry money to our office.


RATTLEMASTERS-OF-TEXAS also puts on Rattling/Video Tournaments during  the "Peak Rut" in South Texas or other areas. We have premier ranches that host our events. To learn more about the tournaments that are scheduled this season click on Tournaments.
