Fresh shed

Postby ishman » Mon Jan 03, 2011 6:32 pm

I found my first shed of the year yesterday. It is a 4 pt side off of a one year old. Should make for a nice 2 yr old next yr. It still had the wax ring and blood on it. This is the earliest ive ever found a fresh shed.  So be careful if you are doe hunting in this late season.

I put out a trail camera after rifle season cuz I kept a doe tag for late bow, and got pictures of a half rack 8 and pictures on a buck with no antlers, just two red spots on his head. Alot of deer shot this year seem to be broken off or half racks. Saw a couple on camera and shot a 7 pt in archery that was broken off also. Just ran into that half rack 4 pt now, had 2 large does coming in and 2 doe fawns. He came outta the bottom and ran em off.

Glad to see Your finding sheds already Ishman!I checked my trail camera's this past week....so far only one Spike Buck came in and he only lost 1 side of his rack so far?I also had a nice 4-Point Buck and a large 8-Point Buck come in together at the salt lick and both of them still had their Antlers...this was around Jan 6-7 so it shouldn't be much longer and they should start dropping them by the end of Jan or the first of March?
