I have this camera on a stand about 12 feet from an area under a low hanging bush. the camera is the Lookout Dual running on Verizon.

I used a long stick and scratched all the pine straw and leaves back, then continued to break up some of the dirt. Each weekend I repeat this procedure and spray it with Buck Bomb Estrous.

I plan to test some other products on the scrape too as time goes by like Tinks. This Buck Bomb seems to work well and the reason I like it for this is that its a spray and I can mist some over a large surface area and on the leaves.

I set this camera up a few weeks back and get interest each time I rejuvenate it but its still too early for it to work on its on.

My goal is to get them coming to this spot and as rut approaches have all the bucks in the area use and already be used to the camera.

This camera is online on the Ridgetec demo camera page. If you want to check it from time time. For me this is very interesting.

This morning's activity after freshening it up. Today I realized I was a bit too close and backed the camera up some. the new aim is much better I think. This video is before I backed it up.

Has anyone else tried creating mock scrapes and what techniques do you use ?

I've heard that me-pee is pretty good. But with this camera live on the internet I don't want to scare anyone trying that. A lot of people are afraid of snakes. :mrgreen:

Isnt it a bit early for mock scrapes? Around here its mid october before a buck would be interested. I've saw bucks stop and smell mock scrapes early in the season but smelling is all they do.

Yes, it is early which is part of my experiment. My goal is to get them coming and keep them coming until its a naturla scrape from the bucks and does when season is approaching. camera is set up and they'll be used to it.

ok, so since starting this thing I have only had real interest from does and a young buck. I have determined that starting this in August was probably a waste of time. It is now October 1 and a real buck finally showed up and used the scrape as expected.

The good news is my formula works.

.75 liter of me-pee (refrigerated)
1 14 oz jar of scrape juice doe-n-heat stuff from Walmart - the El Cheapo $9.95 brand

I used a good spray bottle so that I can spray it 6 or 8 feet without leaving my own scent. I also use a long stick and keep leaves scraped away and the dirt churned up. I would say my formula worked.

I was testing video mode with Sound = OFF. I can say it worked and I was a bit confused at first playing with my volume etc until I figured out I had turned off sound. :mrgreen:

This is my supply of Mee-Pee Mock Juice. :mrgreen:

If you bring your kids over let me know if they like Mountain Dew and we can take some precautions. :wink:

My next experiment: Determine the relationship of beer consumption on Buck scrape periodicity

I wonder if the Mrs would let me get away with that :o Did you put any scent in the branch above the scrape?

I believe I have done that..... would you like to place an order for some? If so I will begin drinking beer right away and get the factory going... :mrgreen:
