It wasn't but just about 15-years ago, we began to see a proliferation of the term boundary scrapes
written by supposed "experts" in the field of whitetail deer. They
said these indicated the boundary of a buck's territory. We heard everybody saying, "I found a line of a buck's boundary scrapes. I set up on his boundary scrapes."
Just 15-years ago.
A few of us just kinda leaned back and smiled. We knew that first of all, bucks don't have any such thing as a boundary scrape because they don't have anything to make a boundary of. They aren't territorial to that extent. Radio collar tracking told us that many years ago.
Today we never hear that term expcept by some entry level hunter who found an old magazine to read.
Stop and think, some of you older guys and gals, and see how many myths have been exploded since you started hunting. Somewhere up in the Northeast, I still have a guy convinced the only true way to tell a deer's age is to cut the right front leg off and count the rings in the shinbone.
And deer do Do Look Up.
Bet you didn't know that.
