Minnesota sheds

Postby mnmaverick » Mon Jan 03, 2011 10:53 pm

I found these three sheds yesterday in southeastern Minnesota. I had pictures of the deer they came off -- the larger shed and the smallest shed are from the same deer. Not sure if it injured an antler when growing, or if it is genetic, as we have seen a number of deer like this (with one side undeveloped) in the past few years. It's kind of a cool shed though! All had fallen off in the past few days.

Luck, really. It just happened to be laying on top of the snow right on the path. I found another one that is even smaller yesterday next to a bed under a cedar tree. So far, I've found five sheds in the past two weeks, but nothing big. I still have bucks on camera with their antlers as of Jan. 7.

Nice job mnmaverick.  I'm getting the itch to go shed hunting myself!  I normally wait til the end of February.  We'll see.
