    Alright guys. Question about scrape lines. I'll add the picture below, but this is where I hunt most often. It is MFL land, so I cannot put a trail cam up, so I have no idea what is in there, but last year, I was scouting this piece of property after I shot my button buck. I noticed a scrape line, but it was out in the open. Generally when I've seen scrape lines, they're in a thicker area. This was in the area of the small red box on the picture below. The scrape line was along the yellow line. The area its in, is like a small open grassy area with not much cover. Do you guys think something like this could be a mature, rutting buck, or do you think its more of a community scrape line? QS Land.jpg

    Wasn't supposed to get to hunt tonight but plans changed last minute so I got The last time I sat that field I saw 7 but it was one or two at a time. Tonight was a steady stream all at once. I stopped counting after 8. Cool stuff. I almost quit about 5 minutes earlier because the wind wasn't calming down at all. Then I saw a set of ears and and the floodgates opened. Decided to take my first shot with a bow on a broadside doe. Shot under her but at least it was a clean miss. Still a cool night.

    I would sit down wind of the scrapes at the end of that open area. mature bucks usually bed within range of their scrapes til the rut heats up so be careful. bucks always circle downwind to scent check scrapes so keep that in mind. usually the bigger the scrape the bigger the buck and same thing applies to the licking branch. look for track size left in the scrape. some of these signs may tell you if it is worth hunting. the one good thing is if there are multiple scrapes he is frequenting the area more then once. third and fourth weeks in October are the best times to be on a scrape. after that head to the doe bedding areas or funnels and pinch points.

    Well looks like I'm gonna be in the market for a new DSLR camera. Kinda had a fitz moment Sunday night. (His camera took a swim last season in a BHOD episode) So I've been doing research and I've got it narrowed down, so hopefully have one purchased by the end of the day!

    Good luck. My wife is wanting a new one (she's a photographer) and I can tell you they're not cheap. I think I could buy any company's flagship bow and set it up with any accessories I wanted shooting whatever the most expensive arrows made and I would still spend less than her last camera.

    I'm going to start a short little poll we should end probably about Sunday I'll keep tract of the results.
    So for me I really enjoy connecting with you guys and hope that after this season we can all keep in contact through the off season even if we aren't on the same teams again next year.
    Poll options
    1.keep in contact after the season still
    2. Cut ties and focus on next season individually.

    Hey I'm all for keeping in contact. Anytime someone wants to talk hunting I'm game. Now if the OT at work ever slows down I might be able to talk more hunting. Or, heaven forbid, actually hunt.

    Little update. Didn't get out this past weekend. Also sucked one of my trail cams in the combine. Got 3 new bucks on camera but they have to much potential to shoot. Good news we are half way done with harvest. Also bought a new tractor after our 4955 blew a rod out the side of the block. But got to the farm Sunday night and it already has a flat tire. But by this weekend I should be spending a lot of time in the stand from now till January! Probably won't be hunting morning this weekends still trying to get my waterfowl fix till I convert over the the woods 24/7
