4 Seasons

For the past 20 years, biologists and hunters have debated the merits of whitetail scraping behavior when it comes to formulating hunting strategies. Although few argue about why white-tailed bucks make scrapes, many biologists have concluded the whitetail's scrape-making process is predominantly a nighttime behavior and, therefore, not to be taken seriously when formulating hunting tactics. Truth be known, when many of the major scrape research projects are looked at closely, you'll find the daytime human activity was moderate to heavy in the research area. The bottom line? When the amount of daytime human activity is significant, whitetails become nocturnal and move only under the cover of darkness. The key for hunting any whitetail sign be it scrapes, rubs, or food sources is to make sure there is ample daytime movement in the deer population. If there is, great hunting opportunities will exist.
