This weekend in Cumberland County I found 9 scrapes but only one rub. I usually see more rubs than scrapes. Does this indicate anything about the buck ages classes?

I also hunting Cumberland on Sat. and saw some small rubs but also saw two 1.5yr bucks walking along together. No chasing at all.

Left my cameras alone for a week, over lookin scrapes in 2 different places. I had 231 pictures in the edge of the bean field, over lookin a scrap. Alot of nite action from older bucks and does and alot of day time from younger bucks and does.

Camera 2 had 69 pictures, all bucks and does checking the scrapes in this field also.

Camera 3 was in a dried old river bed, had 24 pics, turkeys, does, and small bucks walking that area.

What I took from it was they are still not quiet ready yet rut wise, getting there tho, by next week I figure to see some chasin.

Killed an 8 pointer Saturday pm in Hickman County, tarsals black, his neck and head were so swollen his eyes were nearly swollen shut. He was by himself though.
Yesterday evening in Carroll County, I watched a 6 pointer hard chasing a doe for at least 5 minutes

Just remember, bucks' necks do not "swell." The larger necks bucks have during the rut is pure muscle that develops due to the massive amount of testosterone their body's are producing right now. Basically, it's the same thing as a weight-lifter or athlete taking steroids.
