Hunting over rubs/scrapes during the rut

Pre rut/last week of October I usually have success and see mature bucks hitting rubs and scrapes during daylight. I’ve had some success during the rut (at least with primary scrapes) but was wondering how you guys react to new rubs and scrapes during the rut. Do you hunt near them?

I’ll hunt scrape lines in the mornings between food and bedding. Especially like to hunt them after a rain. 

I should’ve included that! Love going out after the rain. They always seem to be the first to freshen them up

My scrape cams and even my other cams have been very quiet this past week. Seems like big ones just turned off

Same but I just found a big one that popped up 10 yds from a primary...looks like it’s very fresh

Tried that today - didn't work. Always worth a try though. My only thought is it was still fairly wet in the woods so might have done better this afternoon but could not stay out today.
