Creating Your Licking Branch/ Mock Scrape
A good location to place your primary scrape is at a pinch point or narrow travel corridor that funnels deer through the area. Buck will also hold back a short distance in cover to survey the surrounding area before entering a food plot or field to feed. This holding area will be another fine location buck will scent-check regularly before entering the feeding location. Your mock scrape should be a large, eye-catching, naturally scented experience deer will remember and return to scent check during the rutting periods.
