Demo and Reeper thanks for the feedback...yes I absolutely plan to hang a trail cam and my saddle in that location...difficulty will be in trying to find a way in while keeping the wind in my face and not jumping any deer...but I'll figure it out.[;)]

Joel I did in fact look around ..about 100 meters in each direction...I ommitted several other rubs that were in proximity of the pics I took...yes it is what i would call a primary scrape area...I counted 5 scrapes all within about 40 or 50 yrds and several trails leading into the area..there is a stream thats off about 20 yrds away running parallel to the rubs and scrape site.  The bedding area I'm guessing is nearby..there are thick confiers and brush a litle further up, about 100 meters or more, and hardwoods on either side of this area.  So this buck has everything he needs close by and does not have to go far for it.  I don't want to go in and out of that area much more...I'll go back in a week or two and hang a cam and see what I can find out.
