Checked my trail cam on Valentines day.  Had 6 bucks on film and all but one were still sporting their antlers.  The exception was a spike that had dropped one side.
My pursuit of a buck of a lifetime is much like the Chicago Cubs pursuit of a World Series...the season ends with a "wait til next year"

This is always a sad time of year for me. The deer move off our small property by the time they drop their antlers, so there's never any sheds for me to find. I've looked, and I go out every winter and check the trails, especially after a fresh snow. But the only tracks I ever find are my own. Plenty of deer all year, but once they group up for the winter, they just don't happen through our woods until spring.

This is the weekend to be out in Central Wis with all the snow melt happening. Our group has 32 so far, 8 sets, couple we found last Sunday have been chewed on so it is best to find them right now. We have a ways to go to catch up to last years 77 but then we all know our Wis deer numbers are way down!

I have been searching for sheds for about 13 years and haven't found a single one. My friends will go out on their lands and find a crap load. I been researching on how to find these things and talked with guys who find sheds like its nothing. I put alot of miles in walking thru the woods and still not a single shed found. Anyone else have the same issue?
I only hunt on days that end in ' Y '.

I found a matching set (8 pointer) in MD three or four weeks ago which had just been shed the night before. Haven't found any in VA, but the rodents may have eaten them all by now. They were starting to drop in late December in some parts around here. I heard it was in part due to the fact that there was a lousy acorn crop this fall.
