Rubs and scrapes?

Recommended Posts

Fatty07

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 would like to fish walleye and crappies, very new to this as it has been many years since I have ice fished! Using Ice Castle so not as mobile as a person could be with a portable fish house. Appreciate any feedback, Thanks!

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?

      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx

      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?
