    Last year I saw (I’m pretty sure it was bow hunt or die) a guy stake a oak branch up in a food plot as a lick branch and tried it. It worked great except on November 11 a nice buck broke off the branch for the lick. This year I’m gona try to take it up a notch. I went to Lowe’s got 12’ 4x4 in treated pine and a adjustable flag holder. I buried about 4-5’ of the board and put the holder as high as I comfortably could. Hopefully that will help keep the branch from breaking. And might even get some good pictures of bucks rubbing on the board too. IMG_0349.JPG IMG_0338.JPG IMG_0027.JPG

    Nice. I'm thinking of doing something similar. Got a small plot, and deciding on doing scrape in middle or try an actual tree near border.

    Keep experimenting. This is something I tried a few years ago with mixed results.

    Any action on this set up? Did you have any of the same deer come back to it?

    Lots of young buck activity, but the big boys weren't interested. I had to pull it down early in October, so I don't have a full year of data.

    Scrapes just start opening up in early October here. I’ll pry put a branch up early September
