My SpyPoint Tiny W2S trail camera is triggered by this buck at 2:08 in the morning of October 15.

Here is a cropped close up picture of this buck.

It is still 2:09 and our buck lunges forward and paws the scrape with both of his front legs.

Again, a cropped close up of the buck.

And now he is done with pawing the ground and working the overhanging limbs. Note that his total time at the actual scrape is less than one minutes.

Scrape-18-Buck

Something that some deerhunters aren’t aware of is that does also work scrapes. In fact the doe activity is probably more than what the bucks do. This doe was on the scrape the next day at 7:07 AM.

Scrape-21-Doe

Now she has her legs spread out and is urinating in the scrape.

And the doe is done with it at 7:08. Once again, about a minute.

It’s still the 16th and we have a young buck on the scrape in the middle of the day, 11:59.

And at midnight on the 17th we have a buck visitor on the scrape.

Scrape-27-Buck

So that is the first 3 days of having my SpyPoint on the Grapevine Hill scrape. I put another SD card in the W2S and I will pick it up this weekend so we can see what’s going on in the Grapevines.
