Scrape Making: In the past few days, I've watched multiple bucks work scrapes. The most memorable was a wide, 120-inch 8-point that stood 15 yards from my ground blind. I sprinkled Tinks' #69 doe-in-heat lure in several scrapes and on the overhanging limbs of scrapes by my blind before I started my afternoon hunt. At sunset, that wide buck raked his antlers in the overhanging mesquite limbs, rubbed his eyes and forehead on the branches, pawed the dusty ground like an angry bull, then splayed his back legs and urinated in one of the scrapes I'd freshened up. I could have shot him easily with the bow, but am waiting for one bigger. Right after that, he trailed a doe in the brush, neck half-cocked and lip curled.
