Was hunting last night down in Jefferson Co and was looking into the woods from my stand and noticed what I though was a big rub. Got down after dark and walked up to it and its about 7 feet tall. The bottom looks like something ate it with big chunks of bark. What made this? Or is it some kind of tree disease or what?

From that pic, looks like decay maybe. Could be ants & the woodpeckers are working the tree after the ants. Those are guesses, I have no clue based on those pics.

PW's right, I think. The wood on the ground looks punky. Most any critter that uses tree hollows will work on them, I think.

I would guess woodpeckers as well but that is just a guess based on all the trash at the bottom of the tree
