    Questions on where to sit in comments

    I’ve found a few rubs like the one in the photo that are within the last couple days. I’ve also found 2 scrapes that are from last night and a couple days before. I’ve sat along the most recent rub dusk and Dawn but no deer have come around yet. Is it better to sit near the rubs or the scrapes? I’ve heard deer sometimes usually don’t return to a scrape often. I assume most of the activity is happening at night. I’m hunting from a hang on stand so I can move around easily. Any ideas or advice from experience? Thanks!

    Keep a good mind about how you’re coming into the area. Bucks will bed or hang out where they can keep hidden while still see/smell what’s going on in their territory. Good chance they will spot you before you ever see them, and if you’re spotted you’ve got real slim chances of getting one in close. Nocs and socks. Slower and quieter the better when you’re trying to set up in an area with a lot of sign.

    In general Bro, we don’t get excited about a rub unless it’s the diameter of my wrist or bigger. My giant deer I’m hunting makes rubs on trees as big as my thigh. There are exceptions, but in general don’t invest too much in any rub or scrape unless it’s a primary scrape that’s as big as the hood of my truck. I primary scrape is used for staging and it’s visited by many bucks. That’s a good place to hunt. During the heat of the rut I prefer to hunt pinch points between bedding areas so that I can catch mature bucks in transit while they are scent checking doe bedding areas.
