find * -type f -mtime -$nb_days -print | xargs tar cf - | gzip > $MAITUT/BCK_DATA.tar.gz

Maybe the following works as well (and handles special characters in filenames better)

find * -type f -mtime -$nb_days -exec tar cf - {} + | gzip > $MAITUT/BCK_DATA.tar.gz

Both methods will fail if there are too many files: a second tar is invoked that certainly obscures the tar file.
