Status: offline a scrapeline is just one piece of the deer puzzle.if ya find a good one chances are it will be used year in year out .i hunt near them not on them.and those scent drippers do work and if you make a good mock scrape under it even better.i use em and i always find tracks in them,it does a good job of keeping them in the area.once the real does go into heat all bets are off


the spirt of the wild....... it will cleanse the soul
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

No question scrapelines are the real deal. If you have the patience the buck will show up. I like to make a scrape close to the origional and also use buck urine on both to entice the scrape maker to show up. Doe in estrus can really help especially when used during the high point of the rut. If there aren't a lot of does bucks have to travel to find them and does will leave their calling card at the scrape. The more does the less scrapes are used as there is no reason to advertise everybody is busy. Scrapelines are a great subject joel!

I was on vacation last week in Virginia and picked up the mag and read cover to cover twice by the pool. I do recall reading that excerpt...honest! That is awesome. If I told my wife that I chatted on line with the source author she most likely would have thrown me in the pool...She is not eaxactly in favor of all my hunting.

What is her Major complaint about your hunting? maybe we can offer some helpful advice.
