    I'm going to bowhunt here in KY all of next week and then gun hunt in Indiana this year. I got these pics off of my trail cams yesterday. I hunted a scrape line Saturday - Tuesday and only saw some small bucks. It was way too warm...... Hopefully things will cool down as we go into the weekend and next week. I had 9 different bucks off of two scrapes.

    I guess you can figure out that he's the one I'm after..... 140-150"?????

    Looks like a couple of shooters and two more that will be some prospects in another couple of years.

    Great pics!!! I just made a mock scrape today and set up my camera by it, so I'm hoping for some good pics as well. Good luck with the hunting!!!

    Thanks Sixpack. Hey, do you ever have any luck with mock scrapes??? I made one earlier in the year with no luck. The farm I'm hunting is usually loaded w/deer, but with no acorns this year, I've not seen as many. Obviously the bucks are there. It's been pretty warm too which hasn't helped. Out of 200 acres, I have found ALL of the scrapes and buck activity/sign on a section of 10 acres if you can believe that. That's where my pics are coming from. I made a mock scrape in an area that I saw a ton of does and several bucks last year (saw 30 deer opening morning of gun last year) and they never touched it. I haven't found any scrapes or rubs or anything in that area so far. There are does there however and the bucks will be close behind in a few days.

    Only one thing bad about the pics, There all at night! Hopefully the first big boy will show up at daylight or dusk for you.
