Most important is, once the rut and the small secondary rut is over the scrape lines have no value and your attention should switch to winter food sources and the buck travel routes to them. Bucks will try to put on some bulk weight prior to going into the winter slowdown. Also the deer will tend to move later in the morning and mid day. This is for the northern deer herds. I would imagine the southern deer do not switch to a winter mode???
