Buck antler status reports

Recommended Posts

This is for the shed hunters out there. Post when you see a buck, where you saw him and what was on his head.

I will start. Tonight, southeast metro area, 4 bucks 4.5, 2.5, 2.5 and 1.5 all had both antlers.

Watched four bucks yesterday with my spotting scope, coming out of my food plot, the three smallest ones had both antlers, biggest one only had the left side, saw him shake his head a couple times, thinking "come on, drop it while I'm watching", no luck. frown Hes a nice one too, a typical 8 beyond the ears, 9 inch tines. Saw him off in the distance, he disapeared into some willows, watched for 45 minutes, saw some other does and a buck come out, finally he and his traveling partner, a small 8 came out, and crossed the pond right below my house.

Went and checked the trail he was on, he had to go up a steep bank and over a fence - no luck on the last shed. I'm sure its off by now. frown Hopefully the first one is in my food plot. smile

Saw 4 bucks out my window in Maplewood, MN on 1/17/13. 3 of them still sporting headgear and play fighting with each other while 1 who had already dropped his watched in loneliness.

I have been getting a Bach group of five 1.5's on my cam and they are all supporting their racks as of two day ago

Big Buck came to the feeder lastnight and chased the does away. Still sporting both sides.

Good luck,

Mike

Reports from several relatives and their scouting and t-cams 0 have shed that they've seen. I haven't seen any shed bucks in my area. After Valentine's day is the ticket in central MN through the end of March. Nearly like the new rack pushes the old one off, not quite but it's fairly close, they get a month without antlers give or take a few weeks. By opening of walleye I see lots of bucks just getting a start on new headgear.

Bucks in most of MN dont shed their antlers until March 30! If you are a shed hunter or considering looking for sheds, dont even waste your time until mid- April!

I've seen three different bucks in the last week with one side gone.

South metro down to Owatonna.

Found a fresh shed last weekend.

I agree! id wait until mid April to start looking.... More for me to find in January and Feb smile......... One sided bucks on cam in south MN and Iowa as early as Dec 28. Ive got sheds in both states and I know where all the bedding areas are this year to focus my return hunts on. I say 25% on ground. I find my biggest sets early normally. I say, if you snooze you lose! good luck

Uncle D called so I asked, grabbed his SD card yesterday and 14 bucks all with both sides still but hardly surprising. The good news was no wolves on that card and plenty of wintering deer.
