In central Minnesota as of yesterday I'd say they have shedd about 50%. I got game cam pics from this past week and out of 3 bucks, only one was missing one side. Last night i watched 2 bucks at my neighbors feeder.....full racks on both! From the last 2 years of cam photos....which don't lie.....all horns are dropped by Feb 25th.

Good luck shedd hunting!

5 minutes into my shed hunting today I found the left side to a 150 class 8 pt shed. About 5 minutes later my friend found a small shed to an 8 pt and then about 10 minutes after that I found the right side to a 150 class 10 pt but the G2 is broke. What's weird about the 10 pt shed I found is that it must have started to come loose and got infected b/c the deer probably kicked it off this morning but when I picked it up there was A LOT of "skull" on it and it was ***** (almost like snot all over it)....very nasty...but a nice shed!

OK, trying to use a different picture host, thry this;

I have been out 1 time, a week ago, found both sides to 2 different 10 pointers, One side of one of the ten pointers had a broken off G-4
One of the Ten Pointers had 7 inch bases, thats rare for around here, Not to mention they were found on Public /Govt. land that I had a stand hanging not 40 yards from both sheds and did not sit the stand one time this year.

Ok, it is Mid- Feb, some guys/gals gotta be finding some sheds, Would the northern states have dropped last month? I am sure with places like AL having a rut in Jan they will not drop for a while yet.
