Did you ever see a whitetail buck wrap a pine branch around its face?
The rut brings out the best in unusual whitetail activity.
This buck is creating (or freshening) a scrape used for communication purposes at this time of the year and the location selected for a scrape typically has a scent branch just above it.
Only a couple of spots remain open: join me for the "Whitetail Buck in Rut and More workshop in Shenandoah National Park!
