That looks too deep to be from a deer. More like a bear.

Weird place for a rub, out in the open.  Are you infested with deer?

Moose or elk rub.

Antler rub, for sure. If bear it would have parallel claw marks.

Do porkeys girdle trees? I've only seen them cut canopy.

I would think this too because of the height. I've only seen whitetail scrapes myself, so that is pretty dramatic by comparison, but Elk and Moose are a lot bigger. I wouldn't rule out bear though. Where does OP live, Canada?

You need a trail camera. Then show us the pics.

My German Shepherd dog, when I leave in the morning he runs out and rears up ,scratches and bites the tree.

I've never seen, or had a dog, do anything like this. He is pretty big, and still just a pup almost 1 year old

Google up bear claw marks trees.
That's no bear.

       In your AO, maybee deer.  im guessing that tree is a softwood, like a juniper.  that amount of damage is typical in softwood species.









nevermind.... your dog. that's funny

I didn't even pay attention to OP's location.

But some parts of Missouri do have some elk I believe.

Not if that cheap piece of wire fence stopped it since a bear would tear right through it.

No way that is an antler rub.

Bear or Porcupine, or possibly insect infestation that a bear came in to exploit, but there is not a large
black bear population in MO.


ETA I should have read the thread and I would have seen the OP answered it already.
