hey...what's the thought on the size of a scrape? this is literally a 5 foot diameter scrape...the other 4 or 5 are smaller and look more like what I usually see in the woods...does size of scrape relect size of buck?
believe it or not, I have about a 70 yard wooded boundary between my development and another one that leads into a pretty big wooded area...can't hunt it though, too close to other houses...these deer are just there for entertainment :-( (although most of my neighbors wish I WOULD shoot some of them)...
Get them to sign a permission slip to hunt within the 450' safety zone. If the deer are a real problem, they might do it. I have one stand in Medford that is 50yds. from a woman's house. When she rinses her dishes, I can hear the water run. But that's where the biggies are. I shot a 10 pointer last year that ran and died in a neighbors in ground pool. Now that didn't go over too well I had to pay a pool guy to come in and clean the pool to sooth the ruffled feathers
I wish I had a picture : 10 pointer floating in the pool, blood spreading throught the pool, and the neighbor jumping up and down next to the pool. Yea, it was a real KODAK moment
