Some helpful hints when scouting for a good place to hang your stand:
When you find a rub line or a single rub, if you look at what side the bark is rubbed off of, that is usually the direction in which the buck was walking as he made the rub. This will give you a good idea of where the bucks are coming from, where they are going, and the time of day that the rubs were made. Rubs are often created as the buck travels from food sources to its bedding area in the morning, or on its way back to feed in the evening. Hanging your stand along their path and hunting from early season up to the rut can be a good way to take a decent buck off your property!
