When do you like to start mock scrapes?
Do you know where a scrape is that is there every year? If so check it out year round and I'll bet you find that the licking branches are tended to year round? I have made mock scrapes that have turned into major breading scrapes and they are visited year round.Harley Rider said:I make mock social scrapes starting July or so. These early season scrapes you are making or seeing (June through Aug) aren’t the same ones that are used for breeding. They are like a sign post to tell deer who is around. Both bucks and doe’s will use them. And they don’t need a licking branch or any other over them.
The ones that are starting to be made now (end of Sept to Dec) will be on scrape lines and will be for breeding.
