Bucks leave forehead gland scent on overhanging branches year round. We believe, they scent mark these branches to convey their social dominance in the deer woods. These scent marks are basically social sign posts for other deer to visit and display their presence as well as dominance. The Scrape Generator can be used over existing scrapes or you can create mock scrapes to hang the Scrape Generator above. The Scrape Generator will stimulate fresh forehead gland activity and often encourage Bucks to make scrapes and exhibit rutting behavior long before the pre-rut and the breeding season. Regular use will increase over-marking activity, start hanging Scrape Generators well before the season and continue all season long.
Depending on the size and layout of your hunting property will determine the amount of different Scrape Generator locations for you to establish. If you are hunting small pockets of land with basically one buck bedding area it is suggested to only setup one site. If the land you are hunting is normally just used as a travel route (from a bedding area to a food source, from a food source to a bedding area) then it is suggested to only setup one site. If either of the above scenarios is familiar to the area you hunt, and this sounds like your personal honey hole then it is recommended that you make your setup within shooting range of your stand site.
When hunting small pieces of property you don't want to give the bucks a choice on which Scrape Generator site to visit. You want them to visit the same site (preferably near your stand location) on a regular basis. Inevitably if you give them choices they will make the exact opposite choice of the stand location you will be hunting that day.
For those of you that are hunting much larger tracts of land with multiple bedding areas, food sources, travel routes, etc. then setting up multiple Scrape Generator sites will not be a problem. Make your sites far enough apart to cater to different bucks approaching from different parts of the property.
Once you have determined your Scrape Generator site, whether it be a known scrape location that is being used year after year, your favorite stand location, the tree that is rubbed season after season, or establishing a new stand location be sure to take all precautions to cover the human scent while hanging your Scrape Generator. It is recommended to wear rubber gloves when handling the Scrape Generator to keep human scent off the wick at all times. Just drape the Scrape Generator over the selected tree branch/limb approximately 4 feet above the ground. Thread the pointed end through the hole at the opposite end and cinch it tight. If you choose, go ahead and make a mock scrape under the Scrape Generator (spray some Dominant Buck or Young Buck Buck Bomb in it), place a trail camera over-watching the site and prepare for a great season.
