I've heard this for some time, and mostly agree with it. I have seen bucks working a scrape in the daytime, but it's rare and it's usually when they are making a new scrape.

That's really interesting, and something I've never heard before. Thanks for the perspective. I'm going to investigate it some more around here and see if the general consensus is the same.
