    Im in Montana. Two days ago so, March 23rd, I seen two bucks with one horn each. Both were small a 2pt and a 3pt. Last year I seen one with two horns in mid april.

      Also I forgot to mention, I think for the most part smaller bucks keep their horns for longer. I think that the bigger ones are heavier and easier to fall off. I could be wrong about this because the bigger ones also have stronger bases that could hold on longer.
      Could make another good question on here?

        Last year I had trail cam photos of a nice 8 point on April 21 here in Alabama. No one believed me until I showed the pics. This past weekend turkey hunting, I saw three nice bucks all still sporting head gear.

            Yesterday, (3/24/11) I watched 12 bull elk here in Eastern Ky. There was one nice one but the rest was small. They were actually sparring. Several of them were taking turns just playing/sparring for about an hour. I really enjoyed watch them. I don't know much about elk though. So is this normal/ when do they drop their antlers. I was going to go out shed hunting but I think I might wait a while now. Anyone know when they drop?

                  In MT deer usually lose their antlers in January/Febuary and elk lose in March/April. In May, usually May 1st, is when the WMA's open to shed hunting same as Jackson hole i beleive.
                  This is all just the average but all deer and elk are different and are different is certain areas.
                  I have shed hunted one spot and found horns and never see bucks with horns and then go 5-10 miles away and I'll see 5-10 bucks with horns still.
                  I know also that if there is even one deer still in esterus or has late esterus, some of the bucks will keep their horns longer.
