Anybody started seeing many? I haven't really gone out on the look out for them, but usually see them going up and down the roads around the property. Haven't seen any yet here in Pike County.

West Central Barbour County - We usually see a few scrapes around the first of October and then they disappear until mid-December. Bush hogged and planted all weekend and only saw one fresh scrape. Probably more activity the further East you go toward the GA line.

Days now are about the same length as the true rut. Triggers a fake rut with the bucks is my theory.

I’ve seen a good many on a few properties I’ve been to tracking. They were on high deer density properties with good age structure. I was told by a biologist one time that having older bucks in the population and a good age structure would cause more early scraping activity.

I don't consider either one of those counties mentioned to be SOUTH Alabama 🤣🤣🤣

Yeah, I understand when the rut is, but they generally start doing these activities sometime well before that. This will be my first year back hunting in AL in quite a number of years, I've been hunting in GA and you would start seeing scrapes/rubs very early in the season there, but obviously the rut is earlier there too.

I actually just went and put my climber out about an hour ago and found a fresh rub and a couple of scrapes on a ridge with a bunch of acorns that I haven't been in this year until today

Bucks also have a little spike in testosterone not long after they shed velvet. Velvet shedding seemed to be a little late this year in South Alabama so that could possibly be part of it.

The rut ain't early this year, it's the testosterone . Think " I was ready, but she wasn't willing."

Scapes, rubs, what does it matter anyhow? I find scrapes almost every month of the year. More in March probably than any other month. Ain’t never changed where or how I try to kill a mature buck and never will - in souf Alabama.
