Sounds like a scrape to me, besides the fact that besides standing in urine and licking feet they also lick overhanging branches and rub it all over their face. But at least most scrapes are only worked for 60 to 90 days.
I can honestly say I have found deer poop under oak trees, in food plots and in scrapes but never under a feeder.
