    Antlers dropping in your areas???

    Just curious if you all can offer some input into if your seeing bone on the ground yet in your areas? Im hoping to get a feel for geographical differences across the state. Where i do most my hunting in Hocking County, i havent seen a buck with antlers in 2 weeks. Me and my antler dog Nash have found 10 this past week alone. But on the other hand, in the west near Cincinnati almost all the bucks are still holding on. Interesting how it seems to vary in relation to terrain, food supply, etc.. Any input would be helpful so i can travel around to get my dog some work...thanks

    I have had some bucks up here in NE PA drop in late dec, but the majoriety has still had them on since last week
    yesterday I got pic's of one with half off, and then today the other side, but still have several with both on as of last nite's pic's

    but it should be soon that most will drop then

    next 2 weeks i think most will, all depends in my eye's on how cold or warm it is

    colder seems to help get both off, warmer they seem to stager off!
    but thats my 2 cents from over the yrs!

    It's hard to see but the second deer looks like its a buck that has shed. This is from the 28th of january and is from Carroll county.

    Spent the day in North Central ohio, shed hunting. Came across a group of deer, 3 buck in group. Only one was missing one side. Still a little early up here I think, but will continue to search.

    Appreciate the few responses so far, i found 2 more small antlers in Vinton county on Monday. They were as fresh as ive seen with blood still on the bases. Otherwise saw 5 bucks together tonight inside the Cincy city limits and all were still holding. Thanks in advance for any future info, im starting to catagorize the dates with geographic regions. I think it will be interesting to see if after only a couple years of data, we can find any predictability in antler drop per region and how dramatic it may be across the state. It would be pretty sweet to find out how or where we can start our shed seasons first, then keep the season rolling as long as possible if we move around...thanks again.

    Saw 4 bucks with both sides still on near Marysville on Monday. Not sure, hope to pull my trail cams this weekend and see what I'm finding in central, Ohio.

    Pulled my camera today and had 4 bucks all with horns. Haven't seen a buck yet missing a horn. I'm in Summit County and I think it might be a bit early up here.
