Still Carrying Bone...

Unread postby huntinfool14 » Wed Feb 09, 2011 2:17 pm

i sat out last night over-looking a bean/corn field to get inventory on how far the bucks shed antler process was going..the deer piled out early and have tons of deer in front of me..i was shocked to see around 10-15 bucks with BOTH sides on...

i only saw 3 or 4 small bucks with 1 side..i wish they would drop, im getting the itch to start looking!

Huntn - I would bet these next 2 weeks that a lot of bone will be hitting the ground. I walked today for almost 3hrs Brrrrrrrrrrr! Saw a 140-150" buck that was half racked... best days are right around the corner. :D

Wow. It would be cool to see 10-15 bucks. I hope you post some pics when you find their sheds.

I saw three bucks together this morning, all carrying both sides. City deer with decent food, so they always seem to carry their antlers longer.

Last weekend in far northern WI I saw quite a few bucks that were still carrying both antlers. Kinda surprising but most of these deer are fed pretty good from cabin feeders.
