Let the scraping begin

October 28, 2010 - Travis Hunt
The first two scrapes that I have seen this year are in the same places they were last year. One is on the perimeter of the clover food plot and about 20 yards from my Quadpod. This is a classic scrape with a nice licking branch positioned over a three foot diameter scrape. I watched this scrape last year but never saw a buck freshen the scrape. Sometimes the bucks would walk right past it on their way into or out of the food plot. I suppose food outweighs the need to scrape.

The second scrape that I have seen in a scrape that I happened to stumble across late last season. This scrape is in the finger. The finger is a patch of woods that juts about 100 yards out of the wood line and into the field. I like this place so much I brought a tripod into the area. The tripod is a great alternative to a tree stand when adequate sized trees are available. This scrape, like the one in the clover plot is a classic scrape complete with licking branch and all. Last year this area was concentrated with three separate scrapes within a 10 yard square area. I am eagerly watching to see if a buck makes another scrape in this area.

Greeting from the woods of Ohio… do you have a scrape story to share with us?
