Rubs and scrapes?

4 posts in this topic

Anyone seeing any sign? Haven't seen much sign in the woods yet wondering why. Been kicking around alot of deer in the last month and bagged a doe Monday night, but haven't seen any buck activity in the woods. Just wondering what other are seeing in our great state.

In my scouting so far, I have seen some rubs but haven't seen any early scrapes so far this year. This was all up north as I haven't gotten a chance to get down south yet. I have found some large, solitary beds however!

ive seen very little rubs and scrapes in all of my areas that i hunt but i know they're there. heres the thing about the deer. i know where i hunt there tons of does around and when that happens the bucks wont really mark the territory. but the bucks will start to move alot more in the coming weeks. good luck

In North Dakota I have seen next to no scrapes and some rubs.I personally dont hunt scrape lines as I know that in a month or so all I have to do is hang around the high doe areas and the bucks will be there.

Hang around by the does come rut and you will find the bucks.

I dont see alot of newer sign as I hunt the same areas every year and dont look for new stuff.Just me but where I hunt it works.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
