Default Any Sheds hitting the ground?

I have yet to be out west to check, but I imagine over the next 2 weeks majority of the antlers should be on the ground

Mine just started last week.

I try to look every year but unless the fall under a feeder it's tough. The grass gets so tall and thick about now that you'd have to step on them.

From what I'm seeing near Sonora there's about an equal amount of bucks that still have horns as those that have dropped. I'm sure they'll most all be on the ground before this month is out.

I found a strange matching set this weekend. I had one picture of this buck earlier this year and I think he was a young buck (2).

He might be my way into the record book, longest eye guard of all time entry, lol! 13"

This year has been pretty rough on finding sheds.
I haven't found very many but this is what I've picked up close to my feeders so far.

I am sure glad I at least found one side to the big 8 I've been watching. I'm praying he blows up this coming season. I have found at least one side of him from the last 3 years now. First noticed him in 2013.

I'm excited to see what he does this year.



And I picked up the smallest shed I have ever found.
Baby spiker with a split. Lol

He pretty much stayed by the feeder all year.
