I was walking to my stand in the dark and came to the pond on my lease and heard a lot of movement. I thought it had to be deer and then I heard a very loud scream like a bobcat or something that scared the mess out of me. I ended up hunting about 300 yards from the pond. After my hunt I walked out by the pond an saw this huge rub on an 8 inch around tree. My question is do you think this is from a deer or a cat? I have yet to see a buck at this property and I only have a small 6pt on cam. Expert opinions welcome.

My expert opinion: your pic link is broken.

oh that is just a large male cougar sign post, TWRA released them into your woods

on a serious note are there any tine marks from antlers? usually on a tree like that you can see where the tines scratched on odd angles if it was a buck.

That's gotta be a cat. Aint no deer going to rub a tree that bad.
You should move as far away from that spot as possible so you won't get attacked by an angry feline.

Where did you say that was??? Do you have GPS Coordinates? ;\)

Obviously a marking from the common house cat.....then again, I suppose it could be a deer rub.

I wouldn't go in just to check the camera. I would hunt it first time you get a chance and the wind is rite. Check the camera after the hunt.
