The Preorbital or lacrimal gland, is a small pocket located in front of the deer's eyes.
Rutting bucks may open this gland when signaling their aggressive intentions to other bucks. |
Some researchers and hunters suggest that the Preorbital Gland is used to mark the overhanging branch at a scrape site.
Although this may be true, if you watch a buck marking an overhanging branch, you'll notice that seems to be marking it with his whole head - forehead, antlers, nose, mouth, and Preorbital area.
It seems more likely that he may leaving scent on the branch from several areas which may include the Preorbital Gland.

Grim Reaper Animal Atttractant and Lure
October 22, 2006
I went out last night with the intention of killing a pig.
I was trying some new Grim Reaper Attractant and Lure from IN HEAT SCENTS.
Well this is the second time I used the scent and the wind never let up.
As it was getting closer to dark I see this buck approaching.
I can see he has some great brow tines and think oh he's a shooter.
I never really try to look at the horns bowhunting as it has in the past caused me to shake and get a little nervous.
Anyway he came in to the Grim Reaper Scent at 30 yards and he is down.
