Who left this sign?

Have you spotted any trees with damage like this? It's a deer rub, left by a buck scraping the bark off with his antlers. Rubs are one way deer communicate with each other, especially during mating season. If the tree hasn't been completely girdled, it can often survive and recover. See if you can spot any rubs the next time you're out in the woods!
