    I have researched and read several articles on this topic. I am a believer that it is another tool a hunter can use to lure bucks in. One topic is mock scrapes. To do this effectively you need the licking branch. If you can't find a suitable one in the area you want to hunt, make your own by placing it 4-5ft above your mock scrape. Make sure it is pointing down towards your mock scrape. There is plenty of research done on this topic, you should be able to find all you need on the internet.

      If you find a tree where a buck has made a scrape, place a branch over the scrape and check back later in the day or the next day to see if it has been removed. If it has then a buck is using the scrape and it may be a good idea to hunt by it. I have found several places on the property that I hunt where scrapes have been made in the same place year after year.

        Scrapes are created and maintained by dominant bucks and likely communicate information to other deer such as dominance status or reproductive condition.
