Not unusual at all in a lot of areas to see bucks still with horns. Some areas the bucks are just starting to drop.

Saw an 8pt. and a spike this morning. The 8 still had his rack but the spike had shed one side. Lee county.

i was hoping to find a set from our super wide 8. I ended up bumping him and it was the first encounter with him that I was slightly disappointed to see him as his headgear was still attached.

That picture was taken on my birthday grin

Most of ours were still intact as of a week or two ago. Have read good range conditions will help them hold antlers longer as well.

I have been turkey hunting in late april in Sterling City and seen bucks with horns. I don't think March is anything uncommon for sure.

I have a small high fence place and all my big bucks have dropped their horns 2-3 weeks ago.
I still have several smaller bucks with head gear as of last night anyway.
As a matter of fact we have found several of the bigger sets of sheds.

I have seen bucks in West Texas have their antlers as late as April 22.
