SANDUSKY - Thousands of people were on hand to cheer on Sen. John McCain as his Straight Talk Express made a stop in Sandusky Thursday and he vowed his race for the White House will end in victory. People were waiting by security gates set up for entry to the rally as early as 9:30 a.m. and the crowd swelled so much that some didn't get through the gates in time for McCain's appearance about 2:15 p.m., but watched the rally from the edge of the park.

The rut has just begun, and all over Ohio whitetail bucks are moving. They're looking for does to breed the next generation, and this "silly season" is the year's best time to bag a buck. But there are bucks and then there are BUCKS, and those seeking a real wall hanger should keep a few things in mind when they make their forays looking for scrapes or sitting high above one. First is the importance of rubs. All bucks, whatever their size, make rubs. They strengthen neck muscles, act as scent posts, and are natural vents for rut aggression. But keep in mind when you see some that little bucks rub saplings and hook at bushes, too, leaving those distinctive areas of peeled bark and broken limbs so visible at a distance. Big bucks will pound saplings and shrubs, but they'll also attack fair sized trees. If you find a shrub torn apart, or a rub on a tree six inches in diameter or more, feel pretty sure there's an old mosshorn in the area. That's the one you're looking for.
