If legal...you can snip-off the licking branch from an active scrape with scent-free gloves, and then tie it to another sapling branch near your stand; while making a fake scrape on the ground along with with estrus scent.

If the buck see's and smells it...its likely that he'll make another scrape alongside your fake scrape.

Yes, Sir. There is a ton of ways to make these. From putting posts in the ground and attaching a overhanging branch, ropes, vines, doctoring up branches off trails, or tying a tree over.

As far as scents go, you need to be selective of them according to season. Don't go using no estrus in Sept

Ill have part 3 up within a few days going over scrapes
