I'm like you, I find everything there is to find, but sheds. I found a deer ear a week or so ago. No other remains of the deer, just the ear. I also found a squirrel jaw bone.

have you read SHEDHEAD's tips post at the top of this forum?
If you have read that info and still cant find sheds on your place, its possible that the bucks just are not spending the winter on your ground.
One of the best farms i hunt during the rut, almost never has any sheds on it because the bucks just dont spend much time on the farm in the winter.
Thats probably not what you wanted to hear but its the best explanation i have for ya.

I can say that last weekend I saw at least 6-7 bucks with both sides still on. But while I was doing that, my brother's wife found a shed from this season not 12 miles from me. So I know they are not all on the ground yet by any means. I'm not quite far enough south to find many armadillos so maybe things are different there?

If you dont have any ag fields, and you do have cam pics of bucks that have shed, then i would be spending alot of time looking on the south facing timber ridges/fingers about 1/3 way from the top.
I have found a fair amount of sheds in bigger timber just over the lip of south facing hardwood ridges

Good luck!

Give it time...I went out Sunday morning in an area where I know there was a least 20 different bucks at the end of December feeding and only found one 6pt shed from last year that was all chewed up. Checked some trail cams for the first time in 2 weeks on Sunday afternoon and still have a lot of deer sporting both sides. Another two weeks and it'll be warmer and easier shed hunting.
