Have the bucks started dropping antlers yet or are they still holding? Started looking around some areas where I see a lot of deer bedding. Lots of deer. Saw several during the day when I was walking. Have any of you been out and finding any sheds lately. I'll probably wait a little bit before i go looking more.. I don't want to disturb the deer too much.

Here around Breckenridge about half the bucks have dropped their antlers according to my game cams on my protein feeders

Dickens count most of the bucks are still holding onto antlers on my place. Bell county most are still holding on to them that I’ve seen.

Starting to have cell cam pics of lopsided bucks in Colorado Co.

All pics from Menard County still have them. Notes from previous years tell me this week they will be starting to drop.

Found my first shed of the year yesterday here in Tarrant county. Nothing huge but still a nice find. This is the 4th one I've found in this area. Not bad especially for a very urban area that is growing.

Got a decent set saturday. Found a total of three saturday and 2 friday. Not as impressive as i had hoped. Most pics i am seeing look like most bucks have dropped, but not a lot of bucks coming to feeder that the one camera is working at.

This is south central ok

Without the busted off g4, this deer would have been Mid to high 130’s

Drought year hurt antler size this year. Hopefully we continue to get some decent rains and good browse growth. Starting off the spring pretty well

Its an Ox Rack.

A little spendy, made in Texas. Saves my back, loading deer by myself.

I couldnt recommend it more, if you're the person doing the lifting.
