Try turning around. :) Seriously, I don't know about where you hunt but the deer I hunt follow their nose alot. If the wind is in your face the deer may be comming in from behind and scenting you. Try different locations in the area and see if there is a difference.

Just a thought.

Scrapes usually go dormant when the rut kicks in because the bucks become to busy chasing does that they don't have enough time to redo scrapes. But they will become active when the rut slows a little. Depending on the rutiing activity in your area I don't know if it passed already. Most of the time a buck will always paw the ground clean before urinating in it. But the main focus of a scrape is the overhanging licking branch. It's like the major communication point.

My hunting buddy shot and missed a doe that was at the feeder we set up. we found urine where she was standing, how long until she returns to the feeder? or a buck comes along because of the urine?
