Default Buck checking scrapes during the night

I've been seeing this guy's scrape for about 2 weeks now, but never have seen him hunting. Now that I have gotten the trail cam pics back, I know why. Any ideas on how to get him to come out during the day?

Figure out his Core area, get his patterns down "traveling coridoor" he has to wander around to get to those scrapes. Get to know where he beds where he likes to feed and just try to be in the right place at the right time.. Not much more you can do, The rut is comming so it may be alot easier to get a visual then...Good luck with him!!...

I'm in N.E. Iowa about 45 min. from Ws. border. Seems most Bucks in our area are coming out right at dark. 7-10 days & they will be cruiseing lots of daylight. Just Be patient.

sit and wait all day as much as you can. When you get desperate, find his bedding area and go in a set up, even if you scare him out. He will most likely come back, I know a few giants that been taken that way.

As many have mentioned just be patient... Don't want to take risk on bumping him.... As each day goes by he should start to move earlier and earlier...

move your camera off that scrape into an area where you think he is coming from. If you get pics of him at an earlier time then thats prob where he is coming from and set your stands up accordingly.
