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.

That's about a year old.
I could make a list of a bunch of guns i have, or "have", or wish I had. Why would one feel compelled to provide that infornation freely? Do you feel the need to show off? Is it some immature game of oneupsmanship?

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

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

A man who has nothing which he cares more about than his own personal safety is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless he is made free and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself" John Stuart Mill

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.

grown up around it far too much to be this year's 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.
