Default odd buck behavior...? what do u think

this morning i went out hunting.. on my walk back out of the woods i notice two good sized trees that have been rubbed by a buck.. they were really fresh.. the shavings were still on the ground and hanging off the tree... i thought rubs this time of the year were kinda odd.. especially being there is only a few days left of our bow season...
Do u think this buck will come back to these rubs?

Until those antlers fall off them bucks will keep rubbing. I think when they are getting ready to fall off it kind of bothers them like a loose tooth does us. As far as your question about weather that buck will return I would give that a big yes. Not because he is comming to rub those trees again but because this time of year bucks are generally back to daily routines and specific routes. Sounds to me like you found one of them travel routes.

Bucks always revisit rubs, but usually it is around 11-3 in the morning.
