    At one of our baits In 2010 we had a young boar rub our sign tree. In turn a chocolate colored sow rubbed It a day later. We then got well over 300 pictures of different boars smelling this tree and rubbing It themselves. One of these boars (last set of pics) was a dandy of a bear. This bait ended up getting hit by over 10 bear. Well over 5,000 daylight pictures up till the day before the hunting season opened. We draw for baits and the guy who won the draw for this bait shot a bear the very 1st sit here. He wasn't picky on what he was going to shoot being he had 3 broken ribs when he shot this bear. He's a traditional bow hunter like the rest of us and he didn't know how long he'd be able to hunt for In case his ribs would cause him trouble pulling the full draw weight back and holding the full draw weight unlike a compound. If he would've been In better shape or If my dad or I would've been hunting this bait I believe we would've had a real great shot at shooting the P&Y bear In the last set of pics. My bet Is the bear In the last set of pics Is close to a 20 Inch skull If not bigger. Had many pics of him at this bait 20 minutes before dark. Larry, they guy who had broken ribs shot his bear 1 hour before dark. Moral of the story Is, If you get some rubbing or scratching going on at your bait sights you've got some competition going on. Competition to me Is the best thing you can get at a bait sight.

    It's a wonder those brutes haven't torn that tree down by now. :)

    Nice.

    I have a picture of a big boar standing up and rubbing a tree in our back yard, just 20 yards from our deck a couple of years ago. It was amazing to watch and capture on camera.
