    I have found a scrape to hunt over recently. What should I do to make the most of it? Should I use a call or what? Don't have much experience hunting over scrapes.

    Personally, I would leave it alone and set up a stand downwind of it where I could keep an eye on it.

        I don't pay too much attention to scapes this time of year other than checking to see if they're st ill active. I don't believe they are high traffic at this point. As mentioned above, bucks will check'em from downwind.

          find a trail that leads downwind of the scrape. since most activity around sign like this is at night, follow that trail for about 50-100 yards, then put up a ground blind or tree stand. hopefully you will catch a buck at the last minutes of shooting light, making his way to scent check the scrape.

            steve- Actually, my state has the latest rut in the US. So the bucks are still running and the scrapes are fresh as far as I can tell.

              Pee on it, splash some mountain dew on it and then take a stand 50yds away. I have not tried that but have heard it works.
