Default Magnum Scrape-Dripper

I have one set up within 25 yards of my climber. Last Saturday morning, 2 bucks - a small rack 6 with a spike following came through and went to the scrape. The little spike ran off about 25 yards like a bat out of hell when he sniffed the scrape juice... The 6 stayed in there and was making noise (scratching and moving brush) then the spike came back in. These two bachelor bucks then started play fighting and rubbing horns. It was a great hunting experience. On Monday morning the spike came in alone within 10 yards this time and for 45 minutes hung out eating Maple leaves. Im a crossbow hunter and am holding out for the pre-rut to start up when hopefully I'll catch that big guy I caught on my camera last season.

I will post the pix when I get home...

Its awesome when those new toys work out for you. A good hunt just being able to see them spar a little bit.

Good luck with the big boy. I hope he provides you with a broad side clear shot at 19 yards!

where are you, geographically speaking. I have a couple drippers I have been holding off setting up because I don't want to be too early.

seems like this time of year deer are somewhat curious, but i think in the back of their minds they know that the "predators" are coming. I try to use only natural scents, doe pee, buck pee this time of year. now when the rut starts, i'll use an estrous scent. I have, however, seen many people be successful w/the drippers. Good luck to you!

I'm in Virginia and yes it is a couple weeks early before they start up hot and heavy. I was trying to jump start some activity and have a little I guess. They should turn on by the next full moon and start marking territory I guessing. Here is the buck from last year. Behind my house...

NICE buck! It seems like he's got a little furry friend w/him too. :)
