This is really early for us. Earliest shed I had found was 1-17 and that was last year.

Checked cameras Saturday and seen 2 bucks had shed. Saw another buck which I recognized because of a marking on his face. I knew it was a 10 point I know well.

Searched his feeder and found this today. Just gotta find the other one.

On the way home it dawned on me I may know this deer. Came home and dug out his sheds from last year.

That looks like a dirty shed. He may have pedicle damage and have scull damage

Seen this before as well and took it to a biologist. He said it is not that common and that likely the buck was about 2 -3 weeks away from natural drop and probably bumped it rather hard on something. He said something about the tentatcle as seen in this pic as part of natural calcified blood supply or whatnot. Cool find regardless!

Yea it is a bit early. The tree I found it under I can walk under without ducking. Like he was laying down. But a few early early sheds I have found have had this tentacle like thing.
