Two years ago, my son and I were on a mock scrape kick ( yeah, they really do work!) We started several different scrapes, one with just human pee. After “freshening” it several times, the deer started to join right in. In fact, there was a natural scrape nearby that sort of went dormant once this one was opened up.
There was also a scrape near one of our stands… I had my son “freshen” it every time he left the stand. (Not a problem, kid always has to pee). That scrape became one of the primaries in the area (used primarily at night though – at least by the deer)
In years previous to this, I would have argued against these practices, but that season really changed my thinking!
