They are down in my area! (Whitman County)  Having trouble seeing bucks with any antlers, even among the younger guys.

Variable, will start to drop in December with a bad storm, have seen old bone in May.  Have not seen one carrying for a couple of weeks this year.

The 2 little bucks that hang out in my neighborhood are both still packing. Last year it was March 1st before they shed. The mulies down by bowl and pitcher are usually even later?  :dunno:

All the whitetails around here have dropped to.
