I have at least two nice bucks on the farm I hunt in KY. Its mostly white oak bottoms and cedar thickets that they use for beds. But they're both nocturnal. I think that hunting 150-200 yards from their beds, and putting up a mock scrape early in the year and then using one of those scrape drippers that drip only during the day closer to pre rut may work. My theory is that by doing this they'll think that an "intruder" is coming in during the day. Then they'll be more likely to cruise through there on their own or be more likely to come in to the horns.
Is this a possible solution to hunting these nocturnal bucks or is this mostly nonsense? This is my third year hunting these bucks and they're getting old so I'm open to any advice anyone may have.
