    Any extra large looking "does" get pass if I can't inspect the head gear

    Watched an awfully thick-necked "doe" this afternoon in the close food plot.
    Zhe wouldn't cooperate and turn full-on for the head shot.

    Nice shed. The gin and tonic consumption at this time of year could be another indicator of global warming though. ;)

    Been a few posted on FB as well in MO.

    I went through this forum once, checked the earliest posts each year, and its pretty normal for one or two to be found early December, and that is just whats posted, not whats found

    Probably be a few shed bucks killed during Alternative Season mistaken for does. This may cut down on the number of the bucks that were let walk to grow for next season. IMO Alternative season should be set the first part of December instead of running into January.

    I have had bucks drop as early as mid-December, and as late as mid-april on my place. My son killed a shed buck during ML season in 2010 I think it was. But, have had pics of bucks with both antlers into April many times.

    I guess there is not real rhyme or reason to why they drop when they do. I have read that if does are still coming into estrous in the area, they will keep them longer. But, if a certain period of time passes where a buck has not run into estrous doe, they will drop..... I guess just like people, deer are all different too........
