Ok, it is getting kinda slow here. Anybody finding any shed antlers yet? My PA buddy Bill found a shed gobbler beard at his feeder the other day. That was a first.

Here is the biggest shed antler in my office..

Here is the smallest...

How about you? Show us your biggest and smallest shed antlers.

this will be a fun one Jeff! Great idea. While most of the horn is still attached I was surprised the other morning to find these together in some short grass! I saw three bucks yesterday still sporting their racks...can't what to find more.

Good distraction thread for time at the computer Jeff. I'll play along with a submission of biggest and smallest as well as a matched set pic to go with Bryan's fresh find.

Anyone can find the big ones - it takes a keen eye to find the dinks! (True confession time - maybe not since I found this one right by the front side walk where we feed the deer and turkey.

I sent a text to Bucky the other day:

"I'm still seeing antlers with their deer attached".

I have to assume some shedding has happened, but it's often mid-late March here before most bucks have dropped antlers. A few years I watched a nice 8 point carry his rack well into April. That dude must have been a really careful deer.

Only one I've ever found while actually shed hunting. I believe this antler came from this Buck, not a monster but I would sent a sharp stick at him. Found some in fall mostly eatin though. This is 2015 shed.
