Anyone Seeing any Scrapes Yet?

   I live here in Ohio and I was just wondering if anyone is seeing any scrapes where they live. I haven't seen any, but then again I really haven't been stomping around my hunting area's looking for any either.

   Adding onto my first post

   Adding onto my first post has anyone seen any sparring or fighting going on? Any little guys running the ladies around yet? Or, have you seen any scrapes actually being made. So far all of these for me is a zero. No sightings of any of them.

I know there is an area just

I know there is an area just to the left of one of my stands where the bucks usually make some scrapes. When I got down out of my stand this morning I went over that way and checked it out. Sure enough there was 3 scrapes right in the same area as always.

I haven't, but...

I haven't seen any signs of the rut but I got a call from a hunting buddy while I was coming out of the woods on Friday night.  He said that he was out on Thursday evening and watched a nice buck chasing 4 does around.  He just couldn't get close enough with his bow because of all the eyes on him.  He said the does weren't as interesed as the buck was but it can't be that far away!

Good luck!!!

Scrapes

Over here in Kansas we have found 23 scrapes in the last three days. We were working our Grunt call the last two times out filming and called in lots of little bucks. Last night we got a 160 pretty excited with the grunt call and he started to check out some does. Looks like in a couple of week they will be moving real good over here.

Those three little scrapes I

Those three little scrapes I seen the other day have turned into 3-5 foot round scrapes. I have a trail cam on these scrapes so it should be interesting what I have on my camera next time I check it. I will be out hunting Saturday morning with my son so we will check the camera then. Hopefully I will be posting up some pictures of some giant bucks.

I've only been out scouting

I've only been out scouting once lately, i didnt see any scrapes or anything like that, saw a few rubs and smaller bucks running around. we still have a solid month before things really get going over here. I am however looking forward to getting out more in the next few weeks before my hunt in late NOV. I have been really busy at work and home, I havent had the time i normaly do for my scouting trips oh well such is life. things should settle down enough for me to get out more after this week.

I had my camera at this

I had my camera at this scrape for 2 1/2 days. I seen several smaller bucks on these scrapes, then I caught this guy. I would like to give him one more year but I think if he walks by me he will be feeling an arrow flying through his chest. We have pictures of this buck in velvet and we named him The Coon Buck because we always had pictures of him and raccoons together. I also have alot of pictures of does hitting these scrapes as well. That is something I definitely like to see. Here are a couple of pics of The Coon Buck.
