drip bag spot

3 posts in this topic

I put out a bag in a abad spot, I think.. I couldn't find a spot I liked in a transition zone so i put it near a trail by some nice rubs and made a mock scrape. I that a terrible thing to do or do you think it will help?

Put it out on Sunday and I hope to hunt today or Thursday night.

Thanks for the input.

i had this problem when i first bought one months ago. you need to find a spot where the bucks travel and will visit every day or just about every day. i made mock scrapes and it really workd out well, i dont know how many different bucks came to my dripper with in the week. now i just bought another dripper and put one on a scrape that was made by one of the bucks in my area. i just put that one out a week and half ago and i had alot more action at that one. this buck dug a nice size hole in the ground right about the dripper. but you dont want to hunt around that dripper, you want to hunt about 60-70 yards away from the dripper but right on the trail the bucks are coming from. good luck with that!

Best thing to do with a mock scrape/dripper is to look at the natural scrapes in the area - typically the scrapes have an overhanging branch(actually always) and are on a fairly flat spot without a lot of rocks/roots. Let us know how it goes. Right NOW is the time to hunt those scrapes. early and late in the day.

      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.
