Hunting a Mock Scrape (Rifle Season)

5 posts in this topic

I just bought one of those mock scrape drippers and am very excited to use this riffle season. Can anyone give me pointers on how to use it to its full advantage?

Unless your on private land these are pretty much useless and even if you are they are really designed for right before the rifle season when the bucks are scraping and rubbing during the prerut during bow season. Doesn't mean they cant lure a deer in not sure if you know but all deer make scrapes year round for communication purposes.

Mock scrapes work great. Make sure you wear latex gloves when out in the field, and spray your boots, or wear rubber boots when selecting an area. Then select a nice tree, with some low hanging limbs, and follow the instructions on the kit, for proper set up.

Good luck

Because of the hunting pressure I tried the HS kit 2 years ago on private land and had awesome success went from a foot around when I made it and a couple days later the thing was about 4 feet around and there was dirt everywhere and not to mention a huge rub about 10ft from it, and at the same time my buddy used one and had no hits. good luck

    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend....or yers?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
