Default Buck Rub

Their are alot of these rubs like this and even bigger on the private land that i hunt. What do yall think of these am i just getting excited over nothing or do yall think its from a big territorial buck. I got alot of bucks on my trail cam but ive never seen any rubs like this before.

i'm not buying it as a rub. here's why. to low to the ground, nothing outside of that raw wood. not sure what it is. almost looks like a chain saw being run up and down. if it is a buck he's grouchy.

I agree, also there doesn't seem to be any other tine scoring marks above or to the sides.

I seriously doubt it's a buck rub...as ronn said it is way too low for a buck...and the scrapes themselves looks a lot like chainsaw marks - and the far side of the tree (on the left hand side) is very flat, just like a chainsaw dug into it

I was thinking maybe a Porcupine but even they aren't that aggressive, I doubt it was a Deer or a beaver,
A bear will scarth at trees leaving that type of pattern on the exterior bark but I've never seen a bear scrape into a tree that hard.
I'm leaning more towards a chainsaw too.

When you sit back and look at the shape of the cut
I would say a stump grinder took a lick at it
