Has anyone seen any rubs as of yet. Last year by the 1st of September we had plenty everywhere. This year I have yet to find a one.

Here in Minnesota we usually don' t start noticing rubs until about October 1.

Good Luck!

Nothing in Michigan yet. Usually we require some colder weather to make the velvet itch...

Here in northern WI, we have seen several of the bigger bucks that are pretty polished already. They must be rubbing somewhere! The small 6' s, forks, and spikes are all still in full velvet.

Northern IL, saw only one area that was rubbed last weekend at the farm while we were hanging stands, I think I saw the deer that did it, tall racked 130s. He was polished. He' ll be good next year.

Just remember guys........deer don' t rub to get their velvet off. The velvet comes off by itself, soon after rubbing activities begin.

Good Luck!
