Default This isn't a rub is it?



There's about 3 or 4 of these scattered around the mountain, not sure how fresh it is though.

My guess is an old rub. It appears the bark has grown back along the edges.

Looks a little high for a rub, could be an injury.

No man...I know what that is!

It's a sasquatch sign!

Just ask those wing nuts from "Finding Bigfoot"....EVERYTHING is "squatchy"!

Sorry...had to do it.


It looks an awful lot like an older rub.

Okay, what's a 'rub' that would cause injury to a tree?

Deer, elk, etc "rub" trees with their antlers to remove the velvet and to communicate their presence in an area to others of the species. Usually the bigger the tree that is rubbed, the larger the deer. Sometimes the trees die from the injuries sustained and somtimes they heal and live with a scar.

In South Dakota the deer will rub on wooden road sign posts due to a lack of trees. I have seen old fence posts the deer have actually rubbed down to near toothpick diameter and broken them off.
