While checking my camera and dropping of some corn down in southeast oklahoma I found a fresh scrape. I've never seen a scrape this early in the year. Is this that uncommon? Anyone else seeing scrapes?

Certain popular scrape locations are monitored and refreshed all year. I have video of bucks in velvet freshening scrapes in August. Surprised me when I saw it happen.

We started finding a few small scrapes in mid-August as well. Most of the time it will be the young bucks getting a little excited too early. The big boys know there's no rush and will start scraping on schedule like usual.

Around the first 2 weeks in November

It is a normal thing for the bucks to scrape. The hardening of the antlers and decreasing of daylight triggers a lot of it.

There is a certain type of scrape that you find near a buck's bedding area in early October that is exciting to find.. It will be very fresh and have a couple fresh rubs and tracks around it. When I find this I don't leave but go about 30 to 40 yards downwind and find a place to hide until sunset.
