Bruce “Hutch” Hutcheon MT. Goats at 60yrs, 14ers at 70yrs and scrape hunting whitetail

Episode 8.37 John Stallone talks with host of Whitetail Rendezvous podcast Bruce Hutcheon on scrape hunting for whitetail and his amazing adventures. I tease Bruce about his age but this guy runs circles around guys less than half his age because at 71 hes still climbing 14ers and chasing big game all over the west.

Scrape hunting tips

1 Make a hot scrape hotter by dragging a rag saturated with deer urine behind you as you walk to your stand. When you get there, hang a scent wick on the licking branch.

2 Give the scrape staying power by freshening it with doe urine before you leave.

3 Call and rattle as you sit over a fresh scrape . The maker may be bedded or traveling nearby, and the sound of other deer may coax him to investigate.

4 Midday scrape action can be intense, especially at those in or near security cover. If your buck doesnユt show at first light, stick around.

5 Licking branches are a key part of active scrapes. If they break off a lot of times that scrape will go dormant. you can actually create your licking branches by taking a branch off that tree and wiring it in place.

6 If it has been raining all night make sure you are in your stand when the rain breaks that buck will be back by to freshen up his scrapes.
