Yes, we do, that particular spot is on the fringe of the elk range. I didn't think that was an elk rub, but low elk rubs can be really tricky to tell apart from tall whitetail rubs. One of the things I look for to tell the two apart is broken branches above the rub, and how high up those broken branches go. When they are way up, say over 5 or 6', I typically figure they're from elk and ignore them. The rub in that pic had broken branches above it, bit they were only like 3 or 4' up if I remember right. Any elk would have busted those up rubbing the tree.

Ah sorry, I couldnt tell what the scaling was on my phone. Thats a nice rub
