Scrape Line

4 posts in this topic

I found a 5 scrapes within 100 yards of each other along a fence line with overhanging tree limbs. I plan to hunt it tonight or tommorrow night. What type of scent should I use and where should I put it when I hunt this area? There is also a couple of trees freshly rubbed near one of the scrapes.

Thanks ahead of time for any responses,

Dave

I wouldn't hunt them. Most scrapes get hit at night. Try to hunt some place that would maybe lead to the scrapes.

As far as scent goes i would try to be as scent free as possible and not use any attractant. Like was posted before, I dont think I would hunt the scrape line, find a travel corridor close to it and hunt that.

i also wouldn't hunt directly over them but a trail to it. for attractants. i would try a buck decoy, if you have one you dont need it but it helps, with buck scent and do a little rattling. be sure to put the scent and decoy if you have it up wind, and look for him to come from down wind. be sure your scent free.

thats just what id do, sercumstances are different for each area though, farm, forest, river bluffs, urban,ect. high or low buck to doe ratio all that stuff you know your deer best.

      This ice season  has been in the books on the st croix for about a week now. I ended my year out there with a 50" sturgeon.

      I have been busy with Work ... went down to check it out North access this morning.  Definitely good enough to walk out.  a tall guy walked a big sled right out.  was also a clam 2 seater pull over out on the ice.  The wind however is blowing very cold!  I do not have a sled for walking out ... so hoping for ATV ice soon!  I went searching at Princeton Wallmart if they had any leftover sleds, no go.  Will have to pick one up this week.   Bob
