Hunting the Rubs

Author: 
Scott Scherer

Should I hunt all those rubs. Many hunters if asked have different opinions on this subject. I have set up and hunted many rub lines in the past and have had no luck to great luck. I’ve seen hunters set up on rubs and all they ever saw was a bunch of little basket bucks all year. So what does the rub even tell you about the deer. There are lots of things the rub can tell you about the deer that could help you get the big buck you are looking for.

1. How old is he.

2. How wide is he.

3. How long are his tines.

4. How Mature is he.

As I answer some of the questions above remember that these are studies that I have used in my area and they have worked for me.

1. How old is he. We have found that the older bucks will generally hit the bigger trees. We don’t set up on a bunch of little sapling that has been hit cause lots of times the saplings are used to take off the velvet. So if we see trees that are 6-8 inches around we know that he is an older buck.

3. How long are his tines. When we look at rubs we always see if there is a tree behind the tree being rubbed. Once we found a rub and the tree 14 inches behind it had marks on it. This let us know that while the buck was rubbing his tines were hitting the other tree so we new he was at least 14 inches tall.

2. How wide is he. Well lots of times a buck that is 16 inches wide can rub up trees that are only 6 inches around. So we look for those trees that are 10 inches around and that lets us know that the opening of his main beams is at least 10 inches so he should be pretty wide.

4. How Mature is he. The best way we have found out how mature a buck is, is by looking for old rubs by his new ones. Lots of times we get excited about seeing a rub and we need to slow down and take a better look. If you see a rub look around and see if other trees real close has been rubbed in the past. In my area it takes a two year old buck to rub trees four to five inches around. ...
