Here is a case where reducing your human scent comes into play....


A buck will see you three times, and hear you twice, but he's only gonna smell you once.

I killed my biggest Michigan buck over a mock scrape using the synthetic scent mentioned earlier in this thread. I believe it is made by hawgslimited. Some scrapes are hit all year long, they just don't paw the ground and multiple bucks use them. If you find one of these type scrapes, your in business. That being said, its never to early to make your scrapes, so have at it guys..........

I agree! I have read where some guys start their mock scrapes in July! Bucks start relating to these scrapes to establish social and sexual dominance year round. Some of these were bigger than a table top or car hood :shock: Don Higgins uses them too and gets tons of big buck pics from multiple bucks at his fake scrapes! Great thread by the way!! ;)

I could be wrong Schultzy but given the time of year and proximity to your brothers mock scrape, it appears the buck he killed may be bedded their waiting for the intruder on his scrape 8-) Awesome pics by the way!!

i created a mock scrape last year on july 1st just to see what would happen on cam. every single deer that came by had to come check it out. i even had a doe standing on her hind legs with her whole head and neck in the tree so high you couldnt see it.
