Is it in an atv trail?

yeah there is an atv trail that goes to on the left of the pic. the other one is from deer I believe..then it heads straight into a fence and into the neighbors property.

thats what we thought to but the atv trail goes to the left then the smaller trail in the right goes into a fence and onto the other side..


im hoping its a rub because otherwise the guy on the atv is very good at bunny hopping fences.. :confused:

sure looks like it's been run over by an atv to have that much rubbed off that high up. but maybe it's my eyes playing tricks on me:darkbeer:
good luck if it's a deer doing that though! :thumb:

rub - this early

I don't think that's a rub, not this early- not in Il. I found a couple myself[ I live in central Il. by peoria] I think that is probably just where they were rubbing the velvet off.They don't start making rubs until late Oct. early Nov. right.

if it was hit by an atv then thats a strong small tree...an an acrobatic driver.. there were deer tracks all around it too.. thats why we thought it was a rub.

Pulled one on a buddy several years ago--was checking feeders and stands by myself, and had a piece of a t-post that I had picked up along the fence. I used it to "rub" a cedar about 8" in diameter--and I rubbed it good! When he saw it several days later, you would have thought he had discovered gold!

Had to be the Honda cuz the Polaris would have fell apart trying to get over it. :)
