I am in S.E. WIs. and checked my trail cam pics from Feb. 1 to Feb.10 and I still have 3 bucks on the cam with both antlers on. I had 3 bruisers in December but have no idea where those bucks went to... and they aint' going to tell me neither.

Found this set yesterday. They were laying 10 yards apart. They’ve been laying there 2 years and were in great shape. I ended up killing this buck in 2022. This was his 2021 rack. I found the sheds approximately 1 mile from where I figured he would’ve lost them that winter.

This is him the next year.

Happy kid right there.

I almost got bit by one today. Wearing glasses has been a real disadvantage in the woods. The sweet spot of vision is very small and your head has to move your eyes to what you want to see.
This thing was at my feet on a trail as I set my pack down!!! So looking at my pack and WHAMMO. I passed on a buck at the bottom of this same hill/trail this season. Could have been him.

Matched set off what looks to be the run of the mill 2 year old.

Good picture I show people when they ask me how it’s possible they’ve never seen an antler laying around in the woods.

Found this shed and dead head on a new piece of permission a couple weekends ago. The property is a big field with a creek running along the edge of it. The creek is good size and has about 10 yards width of mature trees along it. The woods near it is known for big deer.

Cloudy days during late February are like a prime late October cold front.
