Default Rrrrrrrrrubs

2 years and I still haven't found the guy responsible for this
Two of these are 20 yards from a stand and the third is about 100 yards away.

Wow! Exactly!! Was this rub done multiple times? Quick get your stand setup. I'm sure that it wasn't a chipmunk that did that.

Wow thats sickening!!!!! The biggest rubs I found in PA were on cedars too. I measured the biggest one at 36 inches. Never saw the buck that did it! Well maybe next year firediver you will beat your 162!

If you look in my Picassa web album that I posted about my trip out to hunt with Scott, all those massive rubs I have pictured are from the same farm, some are the same trees, some are not.

To say they are huge, is an understatement!

I'm just glad I know EXACTLY where they are!

Not only is there a big buck but there is also a big BLIND gobbler on that farm!

I put the stand up in August when there was still a full canopy of leaves. It was my first time hunting that farm so I wasn't sure what the area would look like in late fall.

When I finally decided to hunt the stand.....it was then I discovered the rubs....but also discovered that I was skylined BIGTIME.

There just isn't a good spot for a stand in this area.

As far as trail cameras go.......I don't have any
