    anyone found any shed antlers yet?

  • #2
    Found a fork horn and a old 4 point left over from previous years. All chewed up and bone white. Just found my first fresh 3 point last week. No snow on the ground makes them hard to spot. I am in eastern PA so should really start losing them soon. With the warm weather I think they will be more spread out then in prvious years. In bad snow years I find most on south facing slopes. We will see what this year holds.

      Found around 20 so far, we've only been hittin the haystacks and fields though. Were waiting a little longer to start hitting the brush, hopefully most will be dropped by then.

        Bucks are still in rut here down south---it'll be a while yet before I can find any sheds.

            The last couple of days I have seen a couple of nice big bucks with both sides still on. I saw a six point with a rack that is beyond amazing I hope I can locate both sides. Is the weather keeping them on longer this year?

              Here in Iowa the mild weather's kept them on later than usual, but I have found two, in my first two trips. One was a runty spike from last year, not sure how I missed it then, since I had blanketed that area. The other was a nice (~60") 5 point side off a hit list buck, it was already pretty chewed, surprisingly.

                Found a matched set from a small 8pt then another thick 4-point shed. Ohio.

                    That's pretty good!

                      I'm thinking the squirrels get to them fairly quick in my area.

                          Yep, our rut does run longer.

                            They must be easier to find in your area. I never seem to see any.
