If any of you guys watch Midwest whitetail or whiteknuckle production some of their pro staff use them. Pretty cheap to make I think it cost me a total of $10!

Scrapes or rubs? I can see rubbing some velvet off around now but scrapes already?

Yep, I'd wonder the same thing as leech.  However, last year when the bucks were all still in velvet, I had a scrape on the edge of a bean field just out of view of my trailcam.  There's absolutely no doubt what it was and it was in July--. I've never seen anything like it!

I think it might would have worked better if that tree in the picture would have not fallen in front of the rub.

 

also I had a fair amount  of does and fawns check it and lick it.

I have a couple of spots where scrapes are opened up every year by opening weekend bow in mid Sept, they aren't easy to find but they are out there.
