    Never seen a deer rub a dead tree. But I've seen some trees that died because they rubbed them.

    10-4 thanks. Not sure I seen a genuine scrape all season and must have covered at least 150/ish acres.


    Big game hunting is NOT an easy skill to master. Hate when people think it’s just little Bambi getting blown away at will.

    this is valuable info for me. Thanks for insight. I’ve actually been wondering that for a while, along with 800 other caveats. Year 2, zero deer.

    My woods are full of fresh scrapes and rubs in the last week. Must be the mythical "second rut".
