    One thing i have yet to figure out about deer hunting is the difference in the rubs you find... i know a rub line is basically a buck marking HIS territory, correct? Well this rub is the ONLY rub anywhere around, and its on the back edge of my foodplot next to a trail. I put 3 mock scrapes around the field with tinks power scrape and this rub showed up a week later...
    So, whats it mean?

    It's not a rub. That's the tree I tied my winch to. LOL
  6. Numerous bucks will use the same rub. Same goes for scrapes. Put your camera up there and see what's around!

    I have seen a piticular line of trees on an edge of the woods that get rubbed on every year, it just happens to be in a spot that the deer travel past a lot. It is more of a community rub area.
  10. Yea I've killed 8 bucks off one rub line over the last 5 years and been seeing bucks there all week

    thats a nice rub, typically big trees being rubbed means big bucks but not always, the next time I get over to the golf course I will take some pics and post of the telephone poles that the deer have rubbed, we shed hunt there and have found some monster sheds.

    That tree gets hit every year. You can see the old scars. My Dad has a pine in his yard like that. Been getting rubbed every year for 20 years. Still, I think you have a nice buck around there somewhere.

    I shot a buck a few years back that had a rub on a cedar just like that. Problem was is that it was tight and you had to shoot fast. He came in and I had only on shot through a hole and only saw the tips of the antlers. It ended up being 22'' pencily 6 pointer :( So I done always use rubs as the whole story
