After a fairly uneventful 3 hours in the stand this morning, I took the bow just in case and did a little scouting. I didn't count but probably found at least 2 dozen fresh rubs of various sizes. Here are some nicer ones. I think I got a new stand site picked out.

that's what I thought. Mudbone pointed out to me that it takes more neck muscle than rack size to make a big rub. Hope to see the big boy, and hope not to screw up and run him across the creek onto another large property

Yup, rub size is all about age, not antler size.

good luck. I wouldnt mind finding a good thing like that. I walked around after climbing down with the bow the other day and never once found a rub. I found a few last year though.
