scent dripper for scrapes

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to see what everyone uses for the scent dripper over a scrap. I have not seen any yet but I want to be ready when i find one to hang the bag over it. The product that came with the bag has been used up and I can't remember the name.

Thanks

The scent that comes with the wildlife research bag is called "Active Scrape". That is the only scent I have had consistant success with in scrapes. I tried the new stuff Tinks came out with last year I think called Power Scrape because it was alot bigger bottle and cost less than the active scrape but didnt have any luck with it so I will be back to the active scrape again this year.

I used a Code Blue Droptime dripper with pretty good results last fall. I plan on hanging it back up in the same spot this weekend. I think they have a new one out this year that actually heats the scent up to body temperature. Temptation?

Active Scrape is it!! Thanks all.... I might give the Code Blue a shot if I find more than one scrape.

Thanks.

Bought the big bottle of active scrape with the dripper this weekend. I have never made a mock scrape so the question to those who have done it, does it work and any words of wisdom. I was thinking of putting it out in two weekends as that will be the time where I will be close to the deer hunting property again.

Checked a primary scrape that I had a dripper over last fall and it was already all torn up, broken branches all over and dirt splayed all over. Can't remember when I've seen that opening weekend.

It's never too early to make a mock scrape. Sometimes it's better to get them established early rather than wait until the 2nd half of October. When scouting, I'll take a ziplock and garden spade and steal the dirt of real scrapes and use it to make mock scrapes. If you're real ambitious, you could even take the licking branch as well.

    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker. 
    • What the.... didn't you just get that for x-mas?  A great read on pellet grills gents, call me cheap or old school but I'm still stuck on open pit and charcoal on the big rig. 
    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
