The bucks are spread out all over and were not concentrated this year (kinda last year). We have been finding sheds from the columbia river all the way up to 4500' +

Disclaimer -- I don't know what I am doing.

I thought that most deer dropped in Jan? Is this a area by area thing or do different species of deer drop and different times?  Went out first time ever last weekend and figured for deer I was late to the party. We saw around 40 deer none with antlers.

Also I am thing Elk drop more towards March?

Any info appreciated I am just wanting to learn, plus I can look for Turkeys while I shed hunt to improve the odds in a few months.

I'm thinking they'll be more spread out this year too. Probably a lot more will be picked up during hunting seasons this year too because of it

Went out a couple weekends ago to test all my gear out in preparation for my sitka trip later this year. Everything held up two full days in all the rain. Found  some sheds which was also part of the weekend agenda.

The back tine on the deer's left antler looks like it has a pretty good scar on it. Very cool shed :tup: Any close up pics?

I was thinking it was caused from a fight, but could it possibly be genetics? the elk shed I found had blood on it, maybe from another critter chewing on it?
