Well I hope that I can get better pictures of it tomorrow . Two days ago the cousin and I were opening some old trail on the farm when We found this rub on one of the small trees that had the trail blocked . I got there just about sunset today and took some pictures of it that really don't show how big it really is . I hope to get some better ones tomorrow .

I hope your late clearing does not change their patterns. From what I read, finding rubs is best to keep in mind for early season next year. Once the rubs are innit us usually too late to count on them hitting it any further. Once done they move onto the next phase so hunting over a rub may not be as productive as one would hope. Good luck proving the writer's theories I read, wrong!

What I've figured out is rubs are mostly the result of Bucks rubbing the velvet off antlers in our area. This usually occurs in August and September for us while the rut hits sometime in late January or early February. Usually when scrapes start popping up they're in the pre-rut.
