    Went to the farm mid day today to retrieve some of my gear for the season. I hadn't been up there since the Saturday before Christmas. Weather, a wedding and a family vacation to the Smokies curtailed my season.

    So as I was walking to one of my stands to retrieve the lifeline I found this.

    This was totally not here a week and a half ago. I've known bucks to frequent scrapes and whittle away at existing rubs well after the rut but I've never seen one started in the last week of Dec.

    Thoughts?

    It was 10 ft to the right of one of my stands too....lol

    I had a guy that lived across the creek from me when I lived in Randolph county that would slip in and hunt my property pretty regular. Being non confrontational I made a bunch of ground scrapes with a big buck hoof I had preserved along with a nice rub line on his property and freshened them up pretty regularly on my way back to my house after I watched his flashlight go back to his house. He stayed down in that bottom religiously after that. Lol Cameras would mess that up pretty quick these days.
