Anyone start shed hunting yet?

Postby BIG 8 » Mon Jan 30, 2012 8:16 pm

Hey everyone I was just wondering if anyone has started looking for sheds yet this year. All the bucks by me still have their antlers so I haven't started yet. I can't wait til they drop!

It looks like it would be a good weekend for shed hunting with the snow levels decreasing in this warm weather. Too bad the bucks are still carrying :)

I have been out a few time and picked 3 fresh sheds of this year. 1 on feb 6 , 1 on feb 7.those two were a set about a 1/4 mile apart .5pt prob 4.5 years .20'inch beams and palmaded.
1 shed yesterday one side of a six pt.they appeard to be on the ground for a few weeks as some of the skin ring was gone on all 3 antlers my estimation is early january. Without snow and the warm weather were having in the northeast finding them this year is gonna be a crap shoot. most bucks are still holding there head gear here. Good luck guys....

I live in northern Indiana and found a matched set last week and then found a match set on Wednesday of this week, the set from this week still had blood on the bases so they were very fresh drops. Saw another buck with a full rack and one with a half rack. So there are still some holding on to them here but they should fall soon.
