    If it's porcupines, the outer, rough bark will be chewed off down to the green, living, inner bark. There will be pretty evident chew marks on this bark. This is a common food source in the winter. Porcupines climb well and they can strip a lot of bark off a tree, sometimes killing them. My guess is that's what did it. (Unless it was Bigfoot. Bigfoot is my second guess).

    What state do you live in? If there was a big snowfall it could be rabbits feeding on bark, but 4ft off the ground would require alot of snow in which case I would imagine you're turkey season wouldn't have started yet. So you can probably throw my theory out the window..

    Bucks will push them over while rubbing and then they spring back up. Or porcupines could also be the culprit. Sounds like a buck rub.

    when me and my friend were turkey hunting we found trees that were torn up. at about chest height (im 5'10) going almost all the way up the tree. the bark was all chewed up and laying all around the tree on the ground. it wasnt a big tree, just a sapling. it was on the side of a hardwood bottom on a hill. i think its squirrels but i just wanted to make sure because ive never seen this before. (there are fox squirrels and grey squirrels in the area)
