    Doesn't seem to be many being found or shared in here? I was out some early and my best spots didn't produce, but I haven't been able to get out much the last couple weeks.

    All the clover seeding I did I figured I'd find a few, however I was wrong. Even seen a group of ten feeding in one of the fields I was seeding. Not sure why but it's a strange year. Only one I found was back in Mid Dec.

    Been looking twice now on my little patch of timber....nothing...not even a white flag bounding away. Thinking they are all hanging out on my neighbors picked beanfield. His fields are daily checked by road hunters. :(

    Looked the last couple weekends and struck out. Still had a forky holding one side 3/1 on camera.

    What's sad, is I live on my hunting ground & can't even find time to get out & walk it to see if there's any out there. :(

    I'd rather put hands on a rack in October or November.....but finding a nice shed gives me hope for the next falls hunting possibilities.

    I have found three. 2 while on the tractor and one fork while walking the woods looking for sheds. I have checked a few times with no successes. Maybe I will find some this weekend while cutting wood.

    They should get a ticket for littering. A collection basket should be placed at each food plot. That would make it much easier on this old man....deer just don't have any respect for Seniors. ;)

    Seen two small bucks in Cole county Tuesday morning. One was packing both sides, the other only had one.....and it was wobbling as he was walking. My kids got to watch this buck walk through the back yard and they were laughing at it because he was shaking his head and rubbing on brush to get the wobbly hood ornament off.

    Only looked twice, but found this guy’s matched set. My 6 year old was with me and picked them up, now has them in his room, and wants me to shoot him this fall so he can put the mount in his room. Challenge accepted...

    Only found one this year about a month ago. Then trail cameras still showed most bucks still holding onto their antlers. Now the fields have been to wet for me to get around in. Just can’t get the weather and any free time I have to cooperate with each other.

    I've only went once but found some older ones during rabbit season and I posted the ones I found on the one time I went this year.

    flatlander_ Really? Show me. .

    I've found three so far, one single and a matched set.

    I checked one of my cameras last night and had a pic of a buck on 2/8 that had lost both sides and a pic of a buck on 2/26 that still had both sides.

    Hard to find antlers when they are still carrying them around .

    agree somewhat, but if I can find a mature bucks sheds on property I hunt, it kinda reassures me how much I don't know about deer and that there is still a chance to kill him next season.

    need 3-4 more to hit double digits, I say 3-4 because I am not sure if I am counting the one that MWT found for me in the picture!

    counties but, only 4 have been fresh. I saw 5 bucks between last night and this morning 2 of them were missing half.
