People should stay out of Deer Yards when the Snow is very deep - and probably altogether during the time they are used.

I agree. I check the yard after the thaw/melt has occured. Not when snows are deep and deer are stressed...I should have made that clearer.

yea, we were talking about it on another board. so i took a pic of my collection. this is from 1 year of serious looking and another year of casual looking.

i hopefully will double it this year.

here in WMU2G of pa. some lose their horns in dec,others by the middle of jan..
last year i found none and i worked hard at it.

we will be putting corn out on sat for deer.
sometimes you can find horns around feeders but people are looking now and deer are not as many as years ago to find horn...

thank goodness there is a edit button on here, man, i get off topic quick.

KoBear thats an impressive collection. Whats even more impressive is the number of matched pairs you have. Any guess as to how many hours you spent shed hunting?

I feed corn behind my barn, last night there were 5 bucks with both horns. None shedding here yet. One nice ten point and the rest are none legal scrubs.

A good ole boy told me he always started on March 1st or close to it depending on the melt. I've stuck to his word and I've found 2-5 each year, which isn't bad for my area. Keep walking and walking, you may find a couple new hunting areas and all of the sudden boom!! There's an antler! I calculated one year each shed took me at least 3-4 miles of walking. Good luck!
