I use the Active Scrap in a scent dripper in Nov. I have not had any activity in NH but I did in Steubin County NY last year. I set up the dripper with a mock scrap where 5 does where going through every morning. Nothing on day 1 but day 2 I let my buddy use my tree stand. At the base of the ladder stand he got a shot at a 4 pointer but missed. The shot occurred within 8 ft of the dripper. The deer ran my way but I couldn't get off a shot because they were running in a ditch so I could only see from the neck up. What my hunting buddy didn't see was the 6 and 10 pointers behind the 4 pointer. This year I am hanging 2 drippers.
What if found unusual about this scenario is during the rut it's every buck for himself. There bachelor group is broken up and there sex crazy. I strongly believe this scent peaked the curiosity of all 3 bucks bringing them back together. The next day I got a shot at the 6 pointer but that's another threaded story I posted last year.
