I have never caught this on my cameras before this time of year, thought it was interesting. Same night (2 nights ago), 2 different bucks 3 hours apart and both missing a side. There is a scrape under the big bush there straight in front.

Deer don't shed antlers in December.

Correct, unless they have health problems. While a few bucks will just naturally shed early, if many in a given area are doing so there are likely health problems involved.

I've probably seen more bucks with broken racks this year than the number of bucks many huntes see in a season. Unless something is drastically wrong Tn deer don't shed this early. The last wad of bucks I saw (10 together) had 4 of the bucks with only 1 side and another had broken tines. Just prior to that I saw another pretty good buck with only 1 side. Broken antlers have saved me from dropping several good bucks.
