I was out looking at a farm yesterday and decided to do alittle shed hunting. On such luck again, but boy is this farm full of deer sign. I don't know why it is so easy for me to find mushrooms but for the life of me I can't ever seam to find a deer shed.:whinging:

Not many dropping on my place in Ozark county yet. I took 7or8 pics of bucks late last week and only one spike had shed one side. I'm not going to start looking until most all have dropped.I think my wife and two boys are going to look this year so I am looking forward to it.

fireman, i always wondered about deer in pens. the thought i get is they drop thier horns later becuase they do not undergo all the stress of being shot at and finding food. i drove by a penned deer farm everyday last year and both the bucks kept thier antlers untill 1st week of april. any truth to this

I think stress probably does play aroll in shedding. A few years ago i was watching a food plot just after bow season and saw a bunch of bucks. All still had antlers but one. It looked like he had some sort of severe injury right between the shoulder blades.It looked like he had been shot at some point. I got it on video but it was too dark to really get a good look.

Good point, our wild deer are under a certain amount of stress that the penned deer aren't under....predators, food supply and such...probably makes a difference. I would bet the northern states are alot more different than Mo. is though, our winters are alot warmer than they used to be...
