Talking Rubs Everywhere...But No Scrapes?

Hey guys, I live in Middle Tennessee. The rut is in full-swing here. I hunt some nice private land with hardwoods, and non-farmed open field. I killed a big 6pt last week, and he was really stinking. I am finding rubs everywhere. New ones pop-up almost every other day. Big trees, small trees, anything they can rub, they will! But I have not found a single scrape! I've walked along the edge of the field, all through th hardwoods, and haven't found a single one. Is this typical, or am I not looking in the right places?

If they are rubbing the way you describe, then there's scrapes out there as well. You're just not seeing them.
