Thought there was already a shed thread but couldn't locate it so thought I start a new one being that time of year...

This one was found on a job site by a coworker friend Friday the 15th as we were lacing fiber optic cable out in a open field next to a shopping mall readying to hand pull the cable... I was probably within 40 or 50 yards of it and in the short grass/weeds but didn't notice or see it but I wasn't looking or expecting to see a shed in the middle of a city in a busy commercial area... After, I looked around and there ain't much places for this buck to live or hid, there is very little cover... Will be a dandy this year, kinda would like to see him with his rack and wonder if the other side matches...

Still snow up over the bellies of the deer strolling around here in MN. Gonna be a few weeks .... even with the best weather conditions.

Date:18-Feb-19

Looks like its time to do some squirrel huntin

Date:18-Feb-19

I'd love to get my pup out to look but no way am I putting any pressure on our herd right now. Snow is balls deep on the bucks and you all know about the cold. Might have to look in late March but not even considering it until then. Hopefully a lot of folks follow suit in areas where winter is getting long.

I was finding them in late January but we just keep getting snow and cold in Montana...….they're buried right now but it was starting off great.

Awesome! Keep the pics comin!

And yes, there should be a shed hunting thread for darn sure!

Date:18-Feb-19

Man, I've never found a matching pair together like some of you do. Seems one falls off and the deer keeps walking with half rack for a day. Even in beds, usually just one if I'm lucky. Some great finds so far.

Date:26-Feb-19

Sorry SD I don't have a beer can pic to relate to mass. I am not a P&Y scorer by any means, but the right side scored 69 7/8ths and the left was right at 68. I am really excited to see what he will look like next year!

Tough finding em in this stuff. I spent a few hours dragging a few hundred pounds of sunflower screenings back into the bush to try and help out the 5-10 does I’ve been feeding through the winter. Temp this morning was -30 without wind and snow is knee to above knee deep out there in the bush.

How’s this Whocares. I found this one out in SW Nebraska while I was trying to belly crawl up on an antelope several years ago. I found it about 5 minutes after I just about put my hand on a tiny (6” long) prairie rattler on the same sneak. He only had one button on his rattle.

Charlie will probably be along soon and submit pics of the matching buttons he found and outdo all of us ;-)

Date:17-Mar-19

t-roy, if i'd have put my hand on a baby rattler the stalk would've been over. The momma had to be around somewhere!

Nice sheds everyone. I am at 41 and counting.

Date:20-Mar-19

It's all relative...…...in the extreme south and areas back east, finding a handful is success. In the Midwest, 30-50 antlers with a few big ones is stellar. Here in the west, we measure in the hundreds between deer, elk and moose sheds. My buddy in eastern Montana found over 400 mule deer sheds last spring and is over 60 this spring and just starting now because of heavy snows.

In the Midwest, I like winter browse like locust groves with bean pods and sunny openings for deer to lounge. Winter grass varieties that are sprouting in woodlots and fence rows. Also, certain types of vines? that grow in the woods attract deer as well. Obvious crops like unplowed soybeans and winter wheat are near the best and think NIGHT. Where are the animals moving around at night when they're active. These can often be low spots (moisture is collecting) and waterways in large ag fields.

Date:20-Mar-19

ROUGHCOUNTRY's embedded Photo

The right antler on this one was 102 inches...…..I spotted that side driving down a black top road going 55 mph laying out in corn stubble. The other side was 85 inches and was on a travel route going back to the timbered ridge behind the ag field.....picked the following day. circa 1995

The big ones are sore thumbs and easy to spot if they're around:)

By: Zbone

Man, some of you guys found some nice ones... Congrats...

Charlie - Am guessing that's from a button buck, a very lucky find... Curious if you found it? I know a deer farmer that's had captive button bucks for years and told me he has never been able to find one of their shed buttons...

Date:03-Apr-19

Charlie that may be a Connecticut buck extremely hard to find!

Date:04-Apr-19

No wonder folks don't kill bucks in Connecticut, they think the 1-5 year old bucks are does.

Date:04-Apr-19

zbone, I don't think it is a button buck, but a 1.5 year old actually. Button bucks don't grow antlers, they just have budding pedicles covered with skin where the antlers will grow from. :) Charlie, I thought I had the smallest one I ever saw, but this one beats it. If I can find a pic of it, I'll post it. Good eye, Man! How did you find that?

By: MQQSE

It’s a button buck. I’ve seen several like that when I lived in NY. Future Booner if he moves to Iowa.

By: t-roy

Those look like they’ve been cut off the skull to me. I don’t see any pedicles on them. I could be wrong, though.

Date:04-Apr-19

They are cut off the skull, but I always figured they were yearlings, not button bucks. The deer were too big to be BBs. The little shed posted also looks like a yearling to me, but I could be wrong...its been known to happen. ;)

By: Zbone
Date:05-Apr-19

TrapperKayak - Button bucks shed their buttons, ask a deer farmer... Have seen button bucks 6 - 8 months old with protruding bone through their skin atop their pedicle...
