I hunt North Okaloosa County and found this scrape with all the fixins today. It appeared to have been worked recently by a doe (small track). I can usually count on the rut kicking in around the last weekend of January.

Does this mean I have a hot doe running around my property or just getting ready to kick off.

I have never done a mock scrape. What do I need to do? Tinks or what?
Find yourself a small tree with an overhanging limb about chest/neck high. Break it off and put some tinks scrape starter on it. Find a stick and clear out about a dinner plate size area or maybe a little bigger under the licking branch. I usually make my scrapes small. Tinks sells droppers to hang over the scrape that only drips during the daytime. I prefer the wildlife research dropper over the tinks just bcause the tinks uses a LOT of fluid. Make about two to three scrapes and put them about 20 yards apart. I always try to find a spot that looks natural for a scrape to go. Such as on the edge of various terrain and timber features like the edge of a field, along an old logging road, or on the transition between different types of trees like pine plantation to hardwood bottom. My last mock scrape I put out I had deer checking it within an hour. Hope this helps.:thumbsup:

I moved my climber today onto a pine that when I get high enough I can see this scrape and trails leading to it.
