Virtually all deer hunters consider scrapes to be very important deer signs. You may see different kinds of scrapes and wonder what and why. As is so often done, we could make this seem to be more complicated than it really is, or worse, we might pretend, so much that we convince ourselves, that we know some secret rut code. We might try to describe what the size of a scrape means. Some hunters are under the impression that all scrapes are made by bucks.
