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.

      when i fish for pike or muskie i use 40-50lb braid and an 80# fluoro leader about 12" that I make myself...never had a bite-off and have reused leaders over and over again...oh, and have caught plenty with this set up

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.

      There's a few really good cat spots in that stretch.  It won't be long and it will all be open.
