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
