I went out today to clear some limbs from the buddy stand that my son and I will use for the youth season and also put a hook on another stand. I found scrapes. They were on all of the tree lines that I hunt. They were not huge but, they did have over head branches that appeared to be freshly broken. I have never seen scrapes this early. I'm usually excited about rubs this time of year. So, what do you all think? Made by a young buck just feeling his oats or, a mature one marking his territory. I'm going out tomorrow night to sit. Hopefully I will get to see for myself. All I know that if it is antlerless and brown, it is down. We only have 6 packages of buger left.
