According to the breeding dates by latitude graph I have - the scraping phase should be on for whitetails in MANY (not all) areas above the 38th parallel. This is when the bucks are most likely to be semi-predictable (as to time and place) as they travel their rub routes, making rubs and scrapes - and looking for estrus does.

It is a great time to hunt near rub routes, scrapes, staging areas and food sources - in the mornings and evenings. Be sure to get there at least an hour before you might expect to see any deer.

God bless,
