Well guys, so far no luck it's been raining allot the last few days. But i do have another question.
 How can you tell how big a buck is by the scrapes and the rubs? Or at least how do you get a good idea on how big he might be. If you need i can send pica to give you an Idea Or count them up there are enough of them.Thanks and good luck to the rest of you!

Not sure you can tell how big a buck is by the scrape or the rubs... Generally, larger scrapes are your dominant buck(s) in the area, but depending on hunting pressures and deer quality, it could vary greatly in relation to the size of the deer... Scout the scrape line(s), you should not have much trouble figuring out which is the dominant buck...

Most generally, if you are finding rubs on trees 6 inches in diameter or bigger, thats a good indication that the buck is pretty good size. as far as the scrapes go it's hard to tell the size of a buck, does will also use scrapes, the more dominant the buck the bigger the scrape, but not always true.

on scrapes try to look for foot prints on the fresh scrapes the alot of times the dirt is worked over enough on a fresh scrape that they might just leave a good print in the dirt again remember the doe could have left her print also. As far as the rubs go generally like they usally say the bigger the tree bigger the deer. That is not always the truth but I would diffently follow that concept and you will have a good hunt. No doubt if you find a fresh scrape line and a good size scrape on a tree stick to it and dont be afraid to put up the trail camera because they will usally come back and freshen up thier scrapes.
