Awesome pics. I don't start seeing scrapes until the middle of october. I guess things are different up north. Neat to see pics of a deer making a scrape.
The scrape activity seems to be a little early here this year, maybe 10 days or so. Might be because of the cooler weather we've had lately, especially at night. It's sporadic right now.
Some of the breeding here begins mid October, but by far the most is done between late October to mid November with the peak usually around Nov 10th.
