There are two maybe 1/8 mile roads that get scraped up real good the first two weeks of October. I got a lot of real good bucks going through there in years past but I waited too long to set up on them and they always dry up around mid October (possibly due to hunting pressure) There are minimal hardwoods and the one road bump up against private, the other does not. Private is maybe 5 year old pines and the public has a good amount of small pines following the roads and then it transitions into steep hills and hardwoods. The small pines and thickness makes it hard to set up on (I think). I think the deer are bedding on the private and coming and working the scrapes on their way to the hardwoods in the afternoon to feed. Does anyone have tips for hunting this type of location when the scrapes are being frequently used? I played it safe in the past 2 years and missed the time when they were really using the scrapes in the day time. I’m hunting around the same location again this weekend and want to try and catch one slipping.
