I liked what jeffalaska had to say. Have you tried getting some friends together and doing a drive? Do these deer have pressure from anyone else but you? It might be a good idea to get a few people in the woods before the season starts and all go a different direction to get the deer moving, maybe you could jump a few? The longer you stay out there the more action you will see.

Besides rubs and scrapes, have you looked at all for...other signs? Like buck and doe poop? On the back of our property we see rubs on trees and scrapes on the ground but in the front where there are no trees right around, I proudly showed my hubby where I'd found some buck poop. He didn't think it was because of the location of it, right out in the middle of the clear....in our 'drive way'. I'd never seen any before, but he had described it to me, and I'd seen plenty of doe. So I took him up there and sure enough it was! So now besides the obvious to look for i.e. rubs and scrapes, I watch for 'other signs' as well. Just a thought.
