I would not chance having a dozen buck skulls and no tags for em........

A few of the dead bucks were in velvet, also found doe.
Warden says ehd on the velvet bucks.

The hard horned one I do not know, he says maybe car or hunter.

We will see, shed hunting will tell something.

The property I found five on I saw alot of buck/doe and shot a decent one.

Not sure as it was my first season hunting there.

Any chance of aging the deer?? Here in Wisconsin we have a massive rodent problem. The horns may make it through 1 year but never a second. The mice and other vermin eat them up in no time. We have so many we sport a healthy population of raptors, snakes, larger rodents, predators and ferel cats. Out west Elk hunting in '98 we found some old Muley sheds that had to be over 5 years old. They don't have a rodent issue like we do. Any chance that since is the first year you have hunted this land that some of these bucks may be a collection of years past?? Maybe I missed some of the other post explaining things further.
It's not a problem, it's a opportunity for a solution.
