I just found them yesterday around noon while scouting (a WMA) so got in a tree as fast as i could; didnt see anything. I know I only sat yesterday afternoon, but time is precious at the WMA because you can only hunt there Sat and Sun! Any help would be great!
All bucks make rubs and scrapes not just the dominant bucks. your area sounds like a good area with ongoing rutting activity,
I would suggest getting back in your stand and be patient, one of them bucks might slip up and wander in for a shot. Good Luck
