Numerous studies have been conducted on buck rubbing behavior. Although it is impossible to say young bucks never initiated rubs on large diameter trees, it would not be the norm, nor common. Rubs on large diameter trees are almost always initiated by older bucks, although even a 2 1/2 year-old will initiate rubs on some pretty big trees.

From my research, I found that rubbed trees the diameter of a Coke can were very indicative of the population of 2 1/2+ year-old bucks in the area. The more trees of this size rubbed in the area, the more 2 1/2+ year-old bucks in the area.
good info that I will remember in the woods. When I hunted my big rub line on friday, I saw two bucks that were 3.5+ by the neck. One morning and one evening, shot the evening one, he might be 4.5. I am hooked on hunting the big rubs now!

I'm not sure what i am suppose to be getting?? I'm not saying you are necessarily wrong but there is no way to prove it. And i can name three big things science is wrong on 1. The big bang theory 2. The age of the earth 3. Global warming. I know they have nothing to do with deer but science is wrong all the time. And if you ask 10 biologist 10 different questions about deer and their behavior you will get 10 different answers.
