How do you nail down scrape week? The absolute best is capturing a buck like the one above hitting a scrape during, or close to, daylight. While this wide, main-frame 8 hit this scrape a week ago, the video reveals some critical info that will hopefully arrange an encounter in the days ahead. First, the buck is not afraid to move in daylight under the right conditions. Second, this scrape is in or near his core area, since bucks aren’t moving big yet. Third, I know from recent hunts that few, if any, does are in estrous right now, so he should remain faithful to patterns for a precious few more days. I can add this video to other info and encounters I have with him to come up with a hunting plan.
