Deer shed = a big clue

Unread postby PredatorTC » Tue Mar 01, 2011 9:03 am

All season i have been seeing some odd rubs in this one area that i hunt. All the rubs had these odd scratch marks and nicks all around the big part of the rub. You can see this in my crappy phone pictures

Then i picked up a shed the other day and found the cause of these rubs. Its the extra little point on the base. Check it out!

Knowing this should really help me. I saw these rubs like this last year also so im guessing its in his genes and he will have it again this year. It also makes scouting easy. I can tell which rubs are all his.

we would really like to see the entire shed also! :mrgreen:

great find, the buck in my avatar had a drop tine coming out the back of his left beam... his rub that where by other trees would be smoothed out from the extra point rubbing the adjacent tree.

They were monster rubs for this area, and it was clear the deer maing them had a 'different rack'... but once we seen him, and where he ws located it became clear they were made by that specific buck.
