I love scouting and finding rubs on the trees. I'm just starting bow hunting this year and was wondering when the rubs start appearing? I know you're not supposed to hunt directly over them but it's fun to find them. Chris

Should be seeing them in a couple of weeks.

I agree fun to find and wonder what's making them.

I think he meant hunt over them like some would a scrape. I've put stands over big sign post rubs and not seen a deer. So I would have to agree with his general statement as well. Now I will use them by all means as a scounting tool as your suggesting Coyote

For me, it really depends on the rubs. When I find a rub line, I can connect the dots & find a good ambush point. Worked last year. Single big rubs, signpost rubs, I don't hunt, that's where the ir camera is going.:rotfl:
