Thanks for the complements. There are differing types of scrapes and this one is a primary scrape. It gets worked when others fade away. That is the kind you need to find. The first buck in the first three pictures is a shooter on this property, but the other one in the fifth and sixth picture can not be harvested due to size restrictions. I do think he will be a great buck next year. The last picture is just on a trail and was one of two bucks I got on film from the trail. He looks to be a shooter but I’ll have to get a better look at him. The first buck is a lot like the one I shot last year in the same spot although I think the one I got last year had a little more mass to him. It doesn’t matter to me because a good wide rack buck like this will always throw my hart in my throat when he steps out. I’m hunting this area hard, but I do not have a stand overlooking the scrape. I’ve never been much of a scrape hunter because of all the nocturnal activity they receive. This may change though.
Jesse, remember just a couple of months back all I could get were coons and maybe just a partial picture of a small buck. Since then I have moved the cameras from the back yard to the hunting woods and, well you see what it has produced. I hope to have some more in a week or so. Heck I just want to go hunting.
