A couple of weeks ago I wrote about mock scrapes and gave out a home made deer attractant formulation to use for late summer/early fall. That formulation has run it’s course and now is the time to start switching scents to keep any bucks that initially responded interested and curious. Each time you visit the site freshen the scrape with a different scent, and since it’s strictly curiosity that would be drawing in the bucks, you can use just about any type scent, earth, food, synthetics and so forth. Many bucks, especially big bucks, are still complacent from months of not being hunted and are still receptive to these scrapes. Evening hunts are best. In about two weeks we will start using a Doe in Estrus urine scent for the pre-rut/rut time frame. We developed two new hot buck attractant scents that are sold only on-line this year, check them out, good luck.
