    Baker,

    You find them in the food plots? You hunt on foot or do you use a dog to find your sheds?

    I walk a lot ! I found this shed following a trail leading to a plot. Was about 75 yards away from the edge. I do find lots of sheds in the plots though...sometimes in the tractor tires. This year a lot of the plots already are getting so thick you about have to step on a shed to find them. We will bring a dog in to look the plots over for us when more deer have shed. They are just starting in the last few days .

    That is a great shed. The kind that a guy in Middle TN can only dream about.

    Thanks for posting that find.

    Interesting how bucks in different areas shed at different times. I would have expected the bucks in Ok. and here in La. to be on about the same schedule. However the bucks here just started about 3-4 days ago and will probably be another couple weeks till finished. South of the border they can hold antlers till end of March or early April.

    Middle TN and Southern KY - bucks still holding based upon camera reports from winter food plots and my personal experience from Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday with me and both dogs after it.

    We have found one buck dead head and one doe dead head.

    The lesson for 2018 was bucks hold them longer than I ever expected and so far 2019 around here is same oh same oh.

    My best survivor just shed this past Saturday. Bucks on the farm usually shed late January through February with some holding into March. Most of the younger bucks still had both sides this past week.

    I’ll get out and start looking next week.

    Great find!

    They held long last year when we had a bumper acorn crop. This last fall we had zero acorn crop and the deer shed early...

    We got on the board with an early season trip to my family's hunting preserve to look for one particular shed dropped by a buck shot a couple week's prior that eventually died of his wounds. Only "fresh" shed. All others were at least a year old. Fun none the less. Can't wait to go back when they actually start dropping [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Those are some terrific finds. Unfortunately dead deer are a part of the deal

    All of you guys who walk your own property are missing out. You do realize there's at least 2 guys on this forum that both have a pair of killer shed dogs who would walk your property for you for free....lol

    Baker: The owner of the high fence was nervous about my dogs running the deer into the fence and killing it. We seen a lot of deer those two days and I was super impressed (the owner was too) how well my dogs did and how well they behaved. I would of felt terrible if one of my dogs ran one of their "high dollar" deer into the fence and injuring it. Non the less we had a blast

    Definitely much easier to find an 87" antler than the ones I'm looking for around here...They fall in the leaves, they go under. haha
