Overhanging Limbs by Grant Woods
Deer scrapes consist of an area on the ground where deer paw away all debris and expose the soil under an overhanging limb. Deer commonly urinate and defecate on the exposed dirt in the scrape.
These are very visual signs that are easily seen. The overhanding limb is also a significant part of “scrape communication” as shown in the video. While the ground portion of the scrape is easily seen by humans and deer. The sign on the overhanging limb isn’t easy for humans to detect, especially by using our sense of sight.
