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.
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.
Looks like that ones been milked of all its syrup , Damn possums
That is a RUB, but it is several years old............
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.
Now this a RUB !!!!!!!!!!!
Don't rub it in.
yes It probably is, however Elk, deer and moose do strip the bark off trees in the winter when all the grass is under snow. It could have started like that and then continued by hyped up bucks during mating season.
Wow. I didn't know they could do that much damage by rubbing on a tree.
I took that picture this morning.
I wouldn't think it'd be that old, I go up and down that damn mountain all of the time, and just now noticed it. Guess I never payed attention. I really don't see many bucks or even signs of them up there, I'll see does all the damn time, but never any bucks. Last one I saw up there was in the summer, back when it's antlers were just starting to come in.
They did not get to be BIG bucks by letting you see them.......
Wow just deadly I know where some big ones are
Yeah thats something nasty. Bambies dad maybe.
Were there anything on the smaller trees ? Like sideswipe stuff?
