Trying something new, Rub/Scrape rope
« on: October 05, 2018, 01:36:43 PM »
I bought and hung a all natural hemp rope from a branch to try to get a rub/scrape area started. I put it up a couple weeks ago and I am excited to see if it worked. Trail cam has been keeping a close eye on it for me. I will keep you updated on how it worked.

I've been interested in this. I saw it w/ a grape vine also. did you are any glandular? I can't remember the name of it, but I believe it's a trappers glandular.

Here pic's before I put any scent on rope. I sprayed deer dander on the rope and doe pee on the ground below it when I checked it out this past Saturday.

Interesting! Might have to try that! Guess it is not supposed to work if you don't put it into fancy packaging and don't have TV hunters using it. I'm old school too!

Yari, I still look back on Gene and Barry Wensel's classic book call "Hunting Rutting Whitetails". It is the very best whitetail hunting book I ever read. I think they were one of the first to create and develop the hanging tree stand and I cannot remember the name of it right now. I went to a local show and then made several myself. Those guys, in my opinion, helped to start the commercial aspect of white tail hunting in the USA. They were one of the very first to teach us about deer scents, cover scent philosophy, stand placement, etc. I still go back and read it even today and if my brother and sister TalkHunting members have not read it, you have missed out on what I consider the bible of deer hunting.
