Exactly there is a way different smell until it all becomes ammonia in the end. Spray doe p on a tree and then smell your pee even my crappy old nose can tell the difference. Lol. All the money spent on crossbow accessories bolts,scopes and lm gonna cheap out on a 6 dollar bottle of pee.........l dont have a problem peeing from the tree with smell but l want the scrape to smell like a doe . Or at the worst a barn animals pee.

There is a scrape right behind the tree that my trail camera is on. The camera faces away from the scrape though. You can see the "licking" branch that is worn and stained. In the picture....


I found it on the 19th, and every day after school since I put a cap full of this in it.....


Today, Oct 26th you can see that it has gotten bigger and there are tracks in it. Obviously, a deer is coming to it and trying to prove a point...

Active scrap is good stuff. You should put it in a dripper then you wont be disturbing the area going in and out. .

I checked a camera today and had a nice 8 point make a scrape right in front of it and has not been back since. I peed in the scrape to see what happens. Will check it again in 5 or so days.

The Active Scrape looks pretty interesting. I may give it a try.

Has anybody tried the Code Blue Grave Digger which is scented dirt you mix right into the scrape?
