Anybody in Ohio find any sheds yet? I know its early but I know of a buck shot in ML season when it hit the ground its antlers fell off. I have my trail camera out but havent got any pics with antlerless bucks .

A friend of mine showed up at our indoor shooting league today with a matched set from a huge 11 pointer from east central Illinois that he found yesterday. So far this is the earlist that anyone I know in this area has found any fresh sheds. My earlist finds for our area I found on 1/22/02 were a nice 9 pointer that I mounted myself. I encluded a photo of them below. I think Ill start shed hunting tommorow.

The earliest I have ever found a shed was in mid March.

Wow, nice shed there. I wonder what it would have scored, I'm guessing around 110-125. Keyword there, GUESS! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Walk softly and carry a big gun...or just make accurate shots.

Although it's rare, I've found fresh shed antlers as early as the last Day of November. And a few in December, but most won't shed until Febuary.
