Very interesting, probably makes alot of hunters question their tactics and strategies.

Interesting read however what we see in the field seems to trump what writers like to print. Just last week I had a mature spike buck come right into my estrus mock scrape paw at it roll his eyes and stand there trying to figure out where the doe was/went. Scrape lines will work when there are few does and bucks are still scent checking their scrapes to locate hot does. When scrapes go cold it usually means the bucks are finding does and no longer need to advertise. There is so much we don't know........

HM I have seen scrapes & bottled doe pee work too
I think not only do they act different from state to state but town by town & even property to property

Good article .......
