I am in southwest oklahoma. I went shed hunting for the first time this season yesterday afternoon. I did not find any. The only thing I got was 5 armadillo's. I checked my trail cameras and I had a few pictures of some bucks with no horns, but I had more pictures of bucks with horns. I had a nice 125 class 8 point yesterday morning on my trail camera. I figured they would have all dropped thier horns by now. I was just wanting some feedback on what you have found so far.

I figured they would be dropped here also, but it looks like most of them have not. I will be out this weekend to see if I can find any

Southeast Oklahoma. No sheds found yet but did have a little buck with one antler on game came a few weeks ago.

Bucks holding the antlers late into the season is one sign of deer with low stress.

Well it looks like I am not going to be able to shed hunt this weekend. We are getting some much needed rainfall. I guess I will hang out in the reloading room this weekend.

I went yesterday morning before the rain, didn't find anything. Saw a turkey and jumped up a few deer. Maybe next weekend...

I have found 5-6 so far this year, a couple decent ones, but I have also still seen some carrying their horns.

Our whitetail have been all over the place this year. I started picking up fresh horns first week of January, and saw a buck still carrying this week. Same size as the first couple I picked up in January.

I am heading to NW Oklahoma in a couple of weeks to shed and turkey hunt. I wasn't able to go until September last year, and I found 18 with 5 match sets.

Nice find. I usually only find three or four horns a year.

I saw the remains of a small buck that had horns over the weekend that got hit by a car in southern Oklahoma. I've been out a couple of times this past month with no luck. Probably going out this evening to see what I can find, should be coming off anytime you would think.

I've had a great year on whitetail so far, but I'm getting ready to throw in the towel on finding the other side to this guy-

Im in Georgia. I checked trail cams early this week and on March 10 I still had a 3 pt holding onto his antlers. I walked over the whole property and didn't find one shed.

He's 161-162. I watched him quite a bit in December and his other side is an inch of two bigger... I think.

A guy locally found a set of sheds from a large, atypical buck we had on cameras last fall. Just sold the pair of sheds for $5500. Not a bad gig if you can find it!
