It seems to be around 25% or less from all the responses. You guys see any relation to antler size with this? The bigger they are the closer they will be dropped to each other? The smaller they are the less likely are to drop together?

I don't really look for sheds just stumble across them scouting. On Monday I was scouting and found a spot that looked promising for a bed. There happened to be a fresh match set laying right in the bed, it was pretty cool. Only the second one I've ever found (only have found about 8 sheds in my 10 year bow hunting career).
In my part of PA bucks need 3 points on one side to be legal. This buck was a 5 point with no brow tines and a broken g2 on his left side making him just legal. The funny thing is he had a 20in right main beam, 18in left main beam, and 4in bases. His mass carries pretty far into his beams as well. I'm looking forward to chasing him next season

I have a few match sets. I have a set off a huge 6 that was right beside each other at a fence crossing.

One set I have scored 145", the other set is a spike :lol: I don't think size has much to do with it myself.

Out of 109 sheds I have 11 matched sets. 25% matched up. All of them were within 20 yards of the other side (some not even a foot away) except one that was about 300 yards from the other side. I match about 50% of the big deer I find. Never really put effort into matching the small ones.. with that said I've never matched any deer I was trying to.

I have two sets my first set ever was matched I was following buck tracks in snow at ten and found a huge 5 point side still bloody I followed tracks another half mile and found the other side. set 2 I found in a bed in late November this year. I have lots of sheds from same bucks though.
