Default anyone see any bucks out of velvet yet?

I was wondering if any of you have seen any bucks that have shed their velvet yet? If so, where are you from? I have not seen any yet in Southern Indiana, all still in velvet so far, but, it won' t be long!

I saw a little fork horn with two decent little eights yesterday evening. The fork horn was out, the other two were still in velvet.

Though others have been seeing bucks out
of velvet for over a week now, I saw my
first one today. While out squirrel hunting
I had a small fork horn walk within 15 ft. of
me. He never did see me, but the second he
hit the trail where I walked...he jumped about
40 yards[].
