I have found 8 so far but nothing worth posting. Only found one from this year on February 2 in Erath county. All bucks on camera in Bosque county still had them last week. Most probably won't drop for at least 2 more weeks

Waiting for them to drop here in Henderson County! Couple bucks I am keeping a close eye on and know their main bedding areas. Fingers crossed!

I have never found a shed and unless one drops in a sendero or under my feeder I will probably never find one. I would like to find one but Iím not walking through my brush trying to find any, Iíd rather leave my Deer Undisturbed.

I love looking for sheds this time of year
Easy to spot with brown grass and no worry about disturbing deer.
They have 6 months to forget !
We have only found 1 side with 4 points at Centerville, but it was a nice deer that seldom survived when we had leases on 3 sides.
Now only one lease adjacent

Won't bother the deer at all. Only thing you really need to worry about is snakes!

I found one side, had 5 points in it. If both sides matched somewhat with a 15” spread, he would have been a 110” buck or so

Funny Ive never found a shed. EVER.
A dead head 8 once and several doe skulls while shed hunting, but never a shed. Maybe this is the year.

A friend of ours found these this pass weekend. Right by road. We wait till spring break to do a complete shed hunt. Itís very tempting to go and look, but itís best to wait and do it right.

My brother was at the lease this past weekend. He saw one little buck with one side missing, and found one decent shed by the protein feeder. Most of our bucks still have them attached though.

We haven't done a big search but have found about a dozen driving around checking feeders, etc. Our deer are about 50/50 shed right now in Walker County.

It's one of my favorite times of the year because you can see what they score vs. what you thought they scored.

Already had a couple surprise me in a good way.

I filled protein feeders and put out a couple cameras last weekend. A buddy found one small 4 point shed, and looks like most of our bucks are still carrying their horns in Val Verde County.

They will all drop over the next few weeks. We will be on the hunt come weekend of April 7th.

Started picking them up early this month in Tom Green County and picked a couple in Bosque county yesterday. Cameras in Bosque County show all but one regular has dropped.

Posted these on your other thread but here it is again. Found this pair from this year.

Last years sheds that we just found.


Messing around with staining a little. Hopefully it will lighten up a bit.

Off topic but sort of not, if anyone has sheds they can live without, I'll trade you a pen per turnable set. They can't be chalky or have been sitting in the sun for the past few years.

I got tons of extra sheds. I would certainly be interested in a pen or two. PM if you are interested.
