How tall can a rub be from a really good sized bull (Rosie, not rocky mtn)? I've been scouting a new area out and have come across three rubs that have left marks as high as 7.5 feet. Are they climbing the tree with their front legs when they rub, like my goats used to do when they marked trees? I ran into the bull I think is making the rubs last year during deer season. He was a huge 7x6 but he had his head down grazing so his rack went forward and I didn't get to see him with his antlers pointing up. I've been up looking for sheds as soon as I could get up in the mountains after the roads cleared from snow. Inquiring minds want to know!
