walked out in the back yard of my home to check on trees i planted last spring and found a one side of a small 6 pointer. i guess i need to go out and look for more maybe next weekend. very nice collecton jiggeneyes i also found one side of a big 12 poiner on dec 17th but it was from the year before but it was in good shape with only a few chew marks on it.
Went out looking today with my five month old lab, didn't find anything, new to this and not a deer hunter, just having a blast with my buddy. Did spook several today, two had head gear, maybe too soon, but I'll keep looking, good training for the dog, have one shed at home he plays with, hoping he figures it out and find them for me, that would be awesome!
Almost whacked a Big Big ten with the van wednesday morning just outside nelsonville he still had both sides. Talked to a friend who has been shed hunting the past few weeks said he hasn't found any yet.
Went out twice, nothing! Every trip I see several deer, like today a HERD of over twenty, found bedding area's, walked all the major trails, feeding area's where I see them eating every day. I'm not a deer hunter,, just like walking with my dog, could it be they haven't shed in my area yet? Need to get some Binoculars so I can tell, my eyes can't see that far if they have racks or not. Or maybe mostly does around here? Or I'm not in the right area or I'm blind and they are out there, hope it's not the last one, lol
Dad and I went out yesterday. I found 3 and he found one...I found what had been probably a ten but he had broke the back tine on one side and the other side was missing from the brow up. Luckily, they were only a few feet apart or I would have never found the broken side. I also found a nice 4 point side and dad found a 5 point single. We also found 3 dead bucks...I found a really nice 8 point, a small 5 point and dad found a 6 point. Somebody had shot the heck out of them on that farm. Hate finding dead ones.
I br ought my trail cam in this afternoon, six different bucks in the past week all still wearing headgear, I would say it is still alittle early for shed hunting. There was one other with only one side left. I couldn't tell if any of the other deer were bucks that had already dropped.
A buddy of mine had 9 deer in his garden(Pike County) wednsday morning 2-22-12 of which 6 were bucks and 5 were carrying full racks and one was a half rack. I myself have jumped a high 130ish buck up twice looking for his sheds the first time on 2-15-12 the second time on 2-22-12 and he is still carrying both sides.
I was driving near the Rocky River yesterday morning and saw two small bucks sparring with each other. Both still had both sides. My guess is that in the next 2-3 weeks they should dropping their racks like crazy
