After the snow melts[8D]

This year, hopefully in march....but we keep getting more[&:]..over 2 feet total on the ground many places here.

Usually here in IA, about this time. The vast majority of antlers are gone by now no matter how mild the winter.

I was getting ready to post the same question really havent had much luck ever finding sheds but have to move some stands around soon and was going to do some searching. I am from MD close to the PA line when do they usually drop around here guys. There is no snow on the ground right now we really havent had any.
