    I'm starting to get photos on my game camers of bucks that have already shed their antlers. Is anyone else seeing this?

    They started showing up on the ESPN game camera the first week of Dec. Two of them were missing one antler.

    None yet. Had about 7 different bucks in the past week that all had both sides still attached.

    As of earlier in the week I had one 6 point that had shed one side. The rest were all still intact. Total of about 8 different bucks

    I was off Tuesday of the Christmas hunt. I went out after work Monday night to check a camera and put out a little feed to hunt Tuesday. Pulled up and there was a shed from the buck I was gonna hunt right where I'd been feeding them!:smack: So, yep, I know he shed for sure. That was the 27th and I had a few smaller bucks that had shed earlier the week before.

    I checked two cameras today. Had 9 different bucks since Friday, and all still had both sides attached. :shrug:
