A buck rub is the action of a buck removing the bark from a tree by running it’s antlers up and down the trunk and often it’s tines are used to shred smaller brush. A buck rub can tell you many things once you learn to read a rub. Besides being a visual sign to other deer you will find that there is a lot of scent is left behind which, like the deer scrape, tells the other deer a lot about the animal that made the rub. While big bucks don’t always rub on big trees it’s more often than not that small bucks rub on smaller trees so a big rub could tell you something about the size of the deer.
