Default iowa deer dropping sheds yet

Has anyone in iowa or illinois been out shed hunting yet. I haven't been able to look much yet but I am going out tomorrow. I haven't found any this year thus far or even seen any half rack bucks yet. I did check the dnr harvest report information and it shows a fair amount of shed bucks have been harvested though.

I wouldn't waste your time.. Earliest I go out is the 1st of February.. If I was going to go this weekend I'd go low impact areas so I wouldn't bump deer off the property. I did find a 64.125" four point side yesterday driving down the highway

I went out for about 3 hours with no luck saw 2 nice bucks both still carrying both sides. Glad they made it through season. Heading back out next weekend.

I am in South Central Minnesota, and I checked cams last Saturday, and then again today. Had 2 small bucks on todays pull that had dropped one side.
