    Default Set up a stand and created a mock scrape

    This afternoon Dad and I set up a stand for next Thursday's opener for the muzzleloader. Also, used a Code Blue Grave Digger dirt package about forty yards from my stand on a nice run. We will see what happens at the end of the week .

    I made a mock scrape with the Grave Digger out of curiosity. 2 weeks and not even a courtesy sniff yet.
    My people call me "Stands on Logging Roads."

    After an unsuccessful AM hunt today I checked the mock scrape. No action and some leaves fell into it further validating no deer activity.

    I made one this AM and put a camera on it. Used code blue as well. Hopefully it gets a sniff or two :)
