I have a cabin about an hour north of the cities, and saw 2 bucks come in the yard that were in the process of shedding the velvet... rubs will follow soon I would think.

I dont thing they really start shredding trees just yet, that intensifies every day now as they strengthen their neck muscles, so the rubbing will increase. So will their body size!!!

Interesting note.... I didnt realize how fast the antler polishing process happened! I got a pic of a nice buck on Oct. 3rd (a 2 1/2 yr old 10 point) his right antler was all bloody, and his left was all shredding velvet hanging there.... The next night I got his picture agian (less than 24 hours later) and his antlers were polished beautiful brown with no sign of blood or velvet! I can even see the tree bark in his bases! ooo.gif I guess I was amazed at how quickly they cleaned up. I figured it would take a few days anyway?? Just though that was neat to capture on film!

I've seen a few small trees rubbed. I also saw a scrape about a week ago. I've never seen one this early before.

      When I left for work yesterday the lake had white caps on it. When I got back 10hrs later it was locked up. An hour after that the first idiot was broke through the landing. If we get the snow they are predicting for Saturday my guess is there will be sleds in the water this weekend. They do it every year.    Patients people.

      I have never fished it in the winter. Do not know of anyone that has either. Should be good though! Cliff
