Rubs And Pre-Season Questions

Around here the bucks are just starting to rub off their velvet. This will leave some rub sign but not nearly as obvious as later just before the rut when all the bark will be worn off. You might be able to find some small broken limbs or roughed up bark.
How quiet were you in the woods? If you were hanging stands they were probably well aware you were there. They probably are still close to there main food sources also. GOOD LUCK Big smile I'm sure they're there somewhere Thumbs up
