Most of us have tried doctoring tree branches for mock scrapes with little success. I’m here to tell you there is a better way to make successful mock scrapes. Deer use real tree branches every year in nature. When you find one and put a camera or blind near it, it seldom gets used. When setting a hunting setup by one very seldom is it at the right distance or angle to present a good bow shot.
There is a better and more efficient way. The Buck Branch is a decoy branch using real life-like leaves, branch and special interactive vine ropes that hold scent for a month or more during dry or wet conditions. You just install the branch to an existing tree or use the Buck Branch Stake Out if no tree is available. Hang at the recommended distance off the ground and at the correct angle that presents either a broadside or quartering away shot. Once installed, make a mock scrape beneath then scent up the branch and scrape with your favorite scents. Of course, use scent only if legal in your hunting area. My preference is Raw Frozen Scents. It is collected fresh and frozen immediately giving you the freshest deer scent on the market. Pour or spray some on the Buck Branch, dip the interactive vine ropes in it and put a little in your mock scrape. Then, start your hunt and enjoy the results!
