    Went to check my spot for Saturday, haven't been back since last season. It's in the Sourland Mountains near Hopewell, near "Hill Billy Hall".
    About 15 yards from the tree I hang my portable stand was a very fresh scrape, a classic right under the licking branch. This will be my 47th bow season and never saw one this early. Checked around the area, couldn't find any rubs. Lots of acorns down.
    Anyone else finding any?

    I agree. Can't be a scrape.
    You are not a "prostaffer" and not on a "team". Trust me. Stop being a loser. Thank you.

    About 8 years back I was hunting a scrape line of 5 scrapes on opening day.It produced a 4 pointer in the morning(passed) and took an 8 eight pointer in the afternoon.That was the only time I have ever seen them at this time of the year.

    sure it can be a scrape, once the bucks shed there velvet they are ready to breed, what you are seeing are the territory scrape

    Definitely a scrape, tracks and ground clearly marked up by hoofs.

    Actually it was me, I go around making mock scrapes and rubbing up trees in unproductive areas just to throw people off and keep them away from my secret deer infested hunting grounds.
