Scouted a 30 acre tract I just recently picked up. There are old rubs everywhere but after a few hours of weaving in and out of all of the trails I could find I did not see the first fresh rub. Tracks and poop everywhere. Another property I have ten miles away had rubs all over on opening day. What's this mean?

The cooler weather. It has been going up and down. When it's cooler, it kicks them into gear. When it's warmer, they won't do as much

I haven't seen near as much rubbing in the last few years. When I was younger I'd find them everywhere.

It could just be that the bucks have not entered the certainphase they are in when they frequent that particular property

You have monogamous deer. Once married, the rubbing will nearly cease (unless the buck takes his doe to an expensive restaurant and fits the bill).

It's normal on my property to not see buck sign until the last week of Oct. \:\)

Not seen much sign in recent years, but still seeing bucks on cameras and during the rut.

It could be as MUP suggested. Bucks in that location may not rub until closer to the rut. if you find old rub-scars from previous years, you know bucks traditionally use that area around the rut.
