geezer sent me a pic yesterday of a fresh shed. I think he has found 3 so far this year.

I'm hitting the woods in just a few, hope to find one myself.

I pulled 4000+ pics again yesterday and still not a single buck has dropped except for the 2 young ones that dropped 3 weeks ago now... I'm staying out of the woods till I see that the big fellas I'm getting pics of daily have dropped. I don't want to run them out as their staying close! I'm really getting excited! Wish they would hurry! I'm ready to get my hike on!

Wish you weren't moving Nate... We or I should say the owner is tossing around buying another huge timber tract virtually next to us.

I'm with ya on not running off the deer. I'm doing the same or at least trying to but I can't win, Everytime I check 2 certain cameras there is some new person or two out romping around. Kinda sucks and gets me frustrated but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they stay around. My big boys are still toting there horns too as of Tuesday.

Heres one from yesterday I found on my lunch break in Brentwood, it was very fresh.



So far all the ones Ive found have been accidental in a way, two fresh sheds and a broken off beam while at work walking right of ways and little patches of woods in neighborhoods. The other one was from a little 5 point with a broke back leg and he dropped one side around Christmas, im guessing the leg issue might have played a role in it. As soon as I saw it had dropped from a cam I took a small hike searching and just got lucky, it was about 30 yards from a feeder I put out.

Heres my finds so far:


Also found this little 8 dead but only because the Buzzards showed it to me....


I always start hunting hard every year the weekend of the Daytona 500 but usually dont do real well until about the second week of March. Good Luck to ya Mr. Hawk

I was looking around the other day and saw some fresh rubs on some privet, fresh enough the bark was still green where it had been rubbed. These are small rubs, nothing much at all but fresh.

I pulled the cards from my cams yesterday and I also have a few one horned and both dropped. However the big boys are still carrying both on my property and I have pics of some real battles. I also found some fresh rubs today while putting out some cameras in new spots.

they are definitely dropping in my area, but how many, I am not sure yet. The big one in the pic is fresh from yesterday.

I was in the woods today in Haredman Co. and had a group of 7 bucks come within 40 yards of me. All 7 still had both sides of antler.

I've found 2 nice sheds about 2 weeks ago in Lewis and Humphreys County. However, I have 3 mature bucks on one of my cameras in Franklin County, and of this week, all 3 are still holding their antlers. I won't step foot in the woods to look until I'm pretty sure they've dropped.

I found two today on my lunch break one of which looked like it had been laying a while but not enough to have been from last year. Im kinda sad we finished up our job there today cause Im certain there is a stud of a deer in there somewhere according to the sign I found. Its always crazy to me that most (non-outdoorsman) people will walk by something like a shed antler and never see it, one I found today was laying on the edge of a gravel road with grown up weeds and such around it, stuck out like a sore thumb.

I pulled out all my cameras from our 4000 acre lease in west TN about third week of January. About half the bucks had already lost their horns. I actually got pics of three bucks that had lost em before season closed. I seen five bucks in my front yard about 3 weeks ago and only one of them had horns.

I am going out next week and this will be my first year looking for sheds. I have hi hopes on what we may find. I saw over 100 deer the other night and none had antlers... not saying any of them were bucks because it was getting dark, but a man can hope can't he?!

Not finding any yet - late 'holding' is a sign of good nutrition and healthy bucks - it's a good thing....
