5"x 7" oil
We are entering that time of year...
exciting if you love the ourdoors,
where bucks are going into their
pre-rut phase then followed by the
blown outright rut.
Beginning with ground scrapes, the
rubbing of bark off trees to caution
other traveling bucks they are
encroaching claimed territories. An
inch-two inch tree/sappling usually a
2-1/2 year old buck or so...but when
3-6 inch trees are shredded in this
card calling ritual...you know a dandy
mature buck is in the area...!
