Hey DD. What kind of game camera do you have? You can check out my website @ www.undertakerenterprises.com and some of my game cam pics. I havent put any on this year though and still have to add all of them plus the deer we have harvested this year.

Hey Doc,our squirrels make bigger scrapes looking for acorns and as far as that rub line goes, I think you have a serious problem with porcupines! No, just kidding. I like to have fun too! Seriously though, you might find where he beds via that rub line.

I'd be in the tree line about 50yds from the most active scrape.

Hey DD, I believe I would hunt the powerline itself if I could get up high enough to see down in it. Because no matter wich way those scrapes are running at some point either him or another buck should be seen crossing the powerline cruising for does, or you may even see one chasing or following a doe. Just my thoughts, good luck!

Are you hunting bow or gun? Do the tracks indicate a mature buck? How many others hunt this land?

Without the above answers, I'd start by hunting downwind but in range of the rubline. Only huntthe stand when the wind is right. Hopefully, thats on the timbered side. A trail cam might help determine if the scrapes are being made in the day or nocturnally. Stay away from thye suspected bedding area till you get a better pattern on him. Better to be cautious and learn as you go than to risk spooking a late season deer. If you make a mistake and he's a mature buck, he wont be aroundtocatch mistake number two.
