Where's a doe, there'll be a buck. But they say that scrapes are actually a border markers between territories a buck consider his. So, finding where he eats and hides and aligning it with the knowledge of the scrape line and terrain, might be helpful.

Also, as the season progresses and bucks get more and more cautious and even nocturnal, take more opportunities to walk, especially walk slow around thick brush areas. I spent first half of Sunday sitting in my blind with not a one deer being seen, then I took a walk (and I was with my son and we made some noise, believe it or not, but we weren't too loud though), and well we saw a buck and 2 does running around their own business (with all the shooting made the day before and during the opening hours!) and would we stay in a little bit better position, we could get a shot (them deer were on the hill top and it was safe to shot). So, if you see no deer, take a walk. They are there, in the forest and even if you miss them now, you'll have more chances to take them next year.

PS, I am not an old timer, so take my advice carefully. But the more you hunt the territory, especially the more you learn about it, the more chances you get. And also probably you'll have more luck too.
