There has been much written about mock scrapes and I very seldom had much luck untill I spent alot of time observing deer(mainly does) using licking branches as they staged up before entering food plots. It was then that i started experimenting with Licking branches. I started out using urine based lures on the branches with limited success. it was when I started to use a product called deer herd in a stick that I started to see alot of use of the branches. One other thing I found is that more than 75% of them turned into scrapes.I now use them to help control the deer movement on my farm. by setting them up in the staging areas I see more bucks alot earlier than I used to.(every buck that walks by visits these branches, licks and chews on them) this keeps the deer in your area much longer. as you can see in the pics I use roundup in mid summer and then rake out an area under the branch. When I Don't have branches at the proper height I will use parachute cord and tie them down to about 60" apply lure and they will use these all year long. does, fawns and bucks love these and are just one more thing to help increase your odds of being successful.
