I hunt in southern Atascosa County and was wondering when the bucks start to shed their antlers? Will they shed about the same time every year?

Mid/late March would be a time to start looking but by April 1st will have more sheds on the ground. April 10th will have 95% or more of the bucks having shed. Problem is the ground temps warm up and grass/weeds take off and get to tall to find any sheds. Also snakes get active mid to late March into April.

I like to look for them during turkey season. Somewhere around the 1st weekend in April. Hunt birds in the morning and sheds the rest of the day.

I would just wait until my cameras started showing slick head bucks.

we have gone to early and found very few - if you wait too late, they get chewed on - my best guess in STex is mid April.

In Kent, Dickens, and Garza county they still have anllers if that tells you anything. We see them into April on a few in Montague but most drop in late Feb to March for us.

We found our first shed here in Menard/Mason County early last week, and saw a few missing an antler. This is about 2-3 weeks earlier than normal for here. Mid march is when we usually see the first shed. Maybe it is an early year
