Default 2020 Mock Scrape Cam

Anyone feel free to add to it. Iíve been so busy I have 3 more to go set up/refresh from last year. I had tons on images and videos from them last season

This is one one a trail between 2 food plots. They love to bed on the edge of the ridge and watch fields. I made this one dead center of their everyday trail. Hard to see grape vine in pic. Sorry for poor pic quality. It will be last Muddy product I buy. Horrible pics, battery life, all pics are same time and date... but thatís another thread

Good thread idea!! Been doing em for years for buck inventory on my place. And yeah, they’ll work em year round, but I usually pull my cameras when they shed just cuz. I have pics of bobcats, yotes, pigs, and of course deer in em. I have done a lot of video on them as well, and it’s cool to be able to hear the pawing and horns raking in the overhead limb. And I ain’t far from ya either (south of Sulphur Springs). Will be a cool thread to follow. Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty

They do work for sure. In fact my own urine works so well I don’t carry a pee-bottle anymore for deer hunting.

They work them year round. It's how they socially interact and keep track of comings/goings of the herd.

I used to keep a 1 gallon milk jug in my blind to pee in and then take it to a nearby tree that had a limb that hung low the deer would lick and rub their face on and pour it out under that limb. Every single buck that came by would stop and pee right on top of it then lick the limb. Older bucks would smell and paw the ground too. It's a deer's version of social media. Sure is fun to just sit and watch them sending out their signals.

Some scrapes are seasonal and some are year round. We put a camera on one and got video clips year round of deer checking the scrape at least. Also, pigs, foxes, bobcats, and coyotes checking it also.

I do my own “mock scrapes” as well as cameras on ones the deer constructed. I have one seasonal scrape on my place dubbed “the community scrape” cuz I can guarantee you, every year, every buck in the area will work that scrape along with all the other critters. It has been there over 10 yrs that I know of for sure. Have several I made, and some that they’ve made that will re-open every year. But the community scrape is ALWAYS there, and utilized. There’s usually always a good reason that “every year” scrapes are where they are, them bucks know where they need to put em for the most visits by the ladies! And if ya make a mock scrape, just put yourself in that mindset. It’s a fun thing for sure doing the scrape cam thing! Good luck Low Fence! I’m in for pics! Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty

Got 2 more built this week

Top is where I cut an interior fence to make a crossing into a food plot. I made a mock scrape here last fall that was non stop action. Used a few years d oak limb in a water oak tree. Lol. Went with a grape vine this year. It got 5-7Ē of rain since I built, so Iím sure I will have to work it again

Bottom is new one on different property. Where I plan on spending most of my efforts. Itís in a staging area with lots of intercepting trails. Always deer movement here all day in season. Typically all for groups now, but by youth season itís a buck parade daily

Interested to know what you put in the scrapes to keep them hitting it. We have found scrapes the last couple of years and put buck urine in them and nothing ever came back to them. Bucks walk right past it or through it and pay it no mind.

A scrape that a buck makes pre rut has one purpose and is abandoned yearly. Also “lures” are fake and a believe a deer can tell. In25+ years I’ve never had a positive experience with bottles “scent”. ... like me trying to speak Spanish, it won’t take long for someone Spanish to say... you ain’t Spanish!

For scrapes now (and rut) I pee in them once... maybe. Then as soon as 1 deer uses it, it has deer scent in it. Licking branch is critical and location is even more important. I can’t draw them to it really, but can alter their daily routine in order to check to see “who” is in the area. It’s a social thing, but will become routine.

Nice, I'll be making some soon myself. I've used vines in the past that worked well. I bought some 1.5" cotton rope to use as licking "rope" this year and some Smokey's preorbital gland scent for the rope. I'll pee in the scrape myself too... Will post pics in July

I put my first in for the year as well. Might get another in this weekend. Its crazy how much water poured out of that grape vine. And the graps hanging across the scrape were doing well too.

Scrape @ the cottonmouth. This scrape got 7Ē of rain the next day after I made it. Still took to it and use it daily. I think the fawn is part of twins I could see a doe with another fawn in background

Remembered getting pics of a buck working a scrape out of the normal time I would expect.
Camera still there so this morning while I was out I swung by with a rake and raked me out a place to the dirt.

Didn't have to pee so will have to see how it does

Location is critical. Had to be were they naturally travel anyway. Clear a large spot 3-4í to bare dirt. No roots, leaves grass. Nada. Flat ground. Hang a vertical licking branch. KEY TO THIS WORKING. TIE IT WITH ROPE AND FREE SWINGING @ Just below belt high. The will use orbital gland and licking branch 10:1 over peeing in it. Itís like a sign in book. I donít always pee in them. If I do it only once, unless it gets rained in very soon after built. Then Iíll clean it out and basically start all over

Have you ever tried Pure Whitetail scents? They are collected from one deer to one bottle. They even put the name of the deer it came from on it. They are also refrigerated to stay fresh. I have used them with very good luck. I use them in the Scent Blasters though. Have never tried them in a scrape. I will start my Scent Blasters running this weekend and run it through season end.

No. They might work.... they MIGHT NOT. I can make a deer use one of fresh dirt and appearance alone. Again, itís like me speaking Spanish. Less is more. If I try and put too much into it, they will know I ainít what Iím imitating.

If scents work in your area, then thatís another tool you can use. I have 0% positive experiences with any and Iíve used ďreal and freshĒ before

I use a drip. It has to be on a trail that is frequented. Yes, clear debris away and rake the dirt, also make sure there is a limb or vine over hanging the scrape. You can install your own limb if you want. In your area there is some type of bush, shrub, tree they will prefer to use, you use it too. Where I hunt most of the scrapes will be under Yaupon, Huckleberry and Muscadine limbs and vines.

In the drip I usually use vanilla, Anise oil, urine, goat dung. Anything that will make them curious or desire to refreshen the scrape.

I made one the other day. Thereís always a big scrape under that cedar bush. You can see the licking branches that have been used for a long time. Thereís a heavy trail that you might can see in the background that goes right past it.

I put a camera on it set to video mode. Will check it in a few weeks.

Itís on the edge of a little ridge between some blackjack thickets and one of my big food plots. Lot of deer on that hill, and I saw 4 nice bucks when I was driving down there to put it out. Hopefully Iíll get some good stuff to add to this thread.

Cool thread! I see you have learned this from Jeff with WHS on youtube. I have been thinking about setting a few up. Need to get out to my place in Oklahoma and start getting ready for season. Keep the updates coming!

Jeff is one of my favorite hunting related YouTubers. I haven't made any mock scrapes, but I've been keeping one "worked" that I found last season. I usually stir it up & **** in it when I go.

Not sure who Jeff is. Im not sure when I started taking pics at mock scrapes, it was before drips and digital cameras. I used an old Camtrakker back then.

Talking about Jeff sturrgis. He has 9,456 clients in 74 states and has been using a no plow method by plowing for the past 20+ years.

But I will give him credit for the hanging vertical limb/vine addition. It seems to work even better than a natural low hanging horizontal limb. And donít break off

That first part of your post hit the nail on the head. That's my least favorite part about ALL of his videos. I feel like he used to use the RTP drill and maybe he lost that sponsor so he doesn't promote it?

Excuse my ignorance on the Licking Branch, but what is the Licking Branch? and what does it have on it?

Scrapes I have had success with. Just didn't realize I was missing out with the Licking Branch Lol

He has a quiet cat now. So it will be crucial to killing a doe. Heís been riding one exclusively for 20+ years

All natural scrapes will have a limb above them that deer rub different glands on. Their own signature. Thatís all it is, a note pad for them to leave a message on. Their hooves have glands as well and leave scent without peeing in them ( thatís how stomping works, it leaves a stop sign on the ground)

I donít put anything on them. Once a deer uses it the stage is set

I agree that sometimes the "I've been doing X for 20 years, I go to X amount of client properties a year, I use X tree stands & X clothing, etc." gets a little old, BUT... I've learned a lot more about hunting, habitat, scrapes, etc. from his videos than I have from people who put two or three feeders in a pen, set up a stand 20 yards away, and call it a day. I'm just saying ...

I will pay better attention. I knew about the glands. But I guess I never paid attention to the branches above. Thanks for the info!
