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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
