I use false scrapes every year for PA archery during the rut. I hang a scent wick above the scrape and use at least two different doe-in-heat products. I like to set the scrapes at 20 yds out in a Y formation from my stand as this also gives me a known shot distance. If you can locate real scrapes all the better. I've just started using some buck urine but don't have a real good report yet on how effective it is.

That's one more move of the chess game of rut hunting. I do like to use scents made from northern deer, and if hunting in the south use southern deer products. I've had deer act as if nothing interests them and then I've had deer use the mock scrape just like the real thing. Nothing is better than seeing a buck take over your mock scrape.

I've never used a scent dripper. I think after I dunk a scent wick in a bottle and hang it up I've got several good hours of scent dispersion. Ocasionaly I also spray from the ladder stand just to get a higher wind drift and further down wind coverage. I don't know if hunters are leaving the scent drippers out all night but I want fresh scent out when I'm on stand. The scent drippers could bring the bucks in at night and not return during daylight hours, I'm not sure on this one.

they operate on the temperature change of day to night and night to day. so they don't drip at night. i've tried them they work well but take a day or so to acclimate. doubt they work if the temp never gets above freezing. grin
