Denny, I think your way over thinking this.... Deer hunting is not rocket science.... IMO best time to be in the woods is NOW... Bucks definately out looking for love NOW... And not finding it yet in every woodlot, therefore they are starting to expand their home range... So if I were you I'd pick my favorite stand and hunt it hard and stop jumping around making fake scrapes etc... Spend your days in one stand and one of those sits will produce... I'm sure some will disagree but that's my personal approach...
