Use Scrape Dripper Now???

I have a scrape dripper set up over a mock scrape that's been up for over a month. The buck were visiting it daily.
It's now out of buck/doe scent and I'm wondering if I should add another bottle to it as the buck are still cruising around. I don't want to screw up anything as I'm seeing buck and doe floating through, but I've observed doe steering clear of any doe in heat scent in the past because they don't want to be harassed by the buck. Each year I've seen scrapes still active through December.

So, with buck season coming in a week, do I add another bottle into the scrape dripper and hope to pull in that buck still looking during buck season, or do I just leave things be natural? Who has tried it, and what were the results?

Thanks

Didn't use a dripper, but I had a doe completely avoid a scent wick with doe in heat on it about two weeks ago. She just button hooked around the whole set up. Of course, the buck that was with her followed her. Still, it might be worth a try if your dripper is in an area where not a lot of other guys will be hunting.

I would just leave it empty. There is scent in the ground and the bucks know itís there. Donít want to get to much human scent in that area. Good luck..

I'd refill it! Earlier today, we watched a buck dogging a doe right next to our factory in front of over 30 people...... They are still chasing!!!!

Yeah, it's a tough call. Think I'll go "natural" for the 1st day and after things settle down, try some doe in heat bombs.
