Acorns or not, in the 6 past years at Ames I've always seen scrapes before rubs. We have a great crop of mature animals and yet I've found fewer rubs over the last 6 years on Ames than anywhere I've hunted in the past. However, I've hunted in areas where I was in the middle of 40 active scrapes. I've also seen fewer big rubs considering the numbers of mature bucks we have than I have in other places with much, much smaller numbers of mature animals. Puzzling to me. The only thing I can figure is that we have so-o-o-o-o much cover with so much of it being virtually inpenetrable that the deer are possibly reserving most of their rubbing for the interiors of these places.

Very interesting observations and theory Mike.
