Default Scrapes or Rubs

Just wanted everybodies feedback, Would you hunt scrapes or rubs. I have found a couple of good scrapes in two different areas of our hunting property. I was just curious.

i generally find scrapes and rubs in the same immediate area but if i had to pick, i would say scrapes. rubs are generally made when a buck is marking territory (and to shed the velvet but they also rub well after the velvet is gone). when it comes to scrapes, multiple bucks will use the same scrape in search of doe's. so you have a better chance of seeing multiple bucks around scrapes.
