Creating a mock scrape in front of your camera is a great way to pattern bucks on your land. Deer are naturally curious about other deer, so mock scrapes get a lot of attention. The problem comes in keeping the scrape fresh. Moultrie’s Scent Boss is a great solution. This battery-operated scent dispenser holds enough scent for up to two months so you won’t have to disturb the scrape as often. Dispensing deer scents in a controlled manner allows the hunter to set up the trail properly by dispensing only what you need at the time you need it. Visit the scrape and don’t disturb it again until it is time to refill. To create a mock scrape, clear a tire-sized area under your scent dispenser with a stick. Use a doe estrous scent during the peak breeding phase of the rut. Buck urine can be used all year. Even hang two scent dispensers across each other over your mock scrape - fill one with doe urine and the other with buck urine. You’ll be amazed at the bucks that will investigate.

"Notice the Scent Boss in the foreground, bucks hit these scrape with the scent boss from the day I put it up in early September until late November last season. Pictures were taken with a Moultrie Game Spy camera, awesome user-friendly product."
