Many bucks will make rubs and scrapes along travel routes. Scrapes will be used by more than just the buck that made it. Even does will check the scrapes. Most of the activity around scrape lines seems to be after dark on the properties I hunt. My most successful stand location is about halfway between a scrape line and a known buck bedding area. This puts me about 300 yards away from the scrapes, and close enough to the bedding area to catch some movement before dark. Try to read the sign in a way that tells you how the deer are moving there. If they are situated along a trail, try going both ways down the trail to figure out why they are using it...possible bedding and feeding locations.
