Windy here again, not any noticeable movement either. decided to terminate todays hunt and scout the area to see I anything could be discovered on current deer movement.
Low and behold, A scrape! looks to be worked recently but because of the wind, leaves quickly covered much of it.
The problem is its 70yds from my current stand and I cannot move to this location. the ironic part of that last statement is, the scrape is 10' from the tree I used to hunt from for the past 4 years.
also it is a parallel deer trail to the one I am on now and it does not intersect anywhere nearby. I am considering creating a mock scrape on the trail I shot the last buck on, which would be 15 yds from my stand and move the scrape dirt and licking branch to the new location. then maybe juice it up a little to get the does to start visiting.
FEEDBACK??? I have never done this and now would be the best time to do it as next week is a no hunt weekend and the week after, IS ON. and should be right smack in the middle of the rut.
