I've had one drop on Dec. 10th before.  First pic is Dec. 9th...still has both antlers....second is on the 10th with one antler gone.

I'm I the only one who feels these are two different bucks.

You are right.. The one that shed was a buck we called the trash buck...little stickers here and there.. The other one was a buck that would come in to feed with him . At first I thought it looked different because of the angle...but on closer look it is the other buck.Got him mixed up.  The next year the trash buck shed one antler on Dec. 18th.
Thanks for all for your past support...We officially pulled the plug and have retired from the Biz. Still dabble a little in real estate.

I picked up my first nice 5 pt shed last year 12/27  :tup:
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

Nothing early about mature bucks dropping , itís odd a very young buck did. Usually those guys are hanging on later than most.

The earliest sheds I have found were small. Fork horn thanksgiving weekend is the earliest. Have found a couple small forks and spike around this time frame as well. This is Blacktail.

Had a little buck on my cam December 18th that was missing his antlers. Pretty certain it was one of many spikes I have around the house.
$5 is a lot of money if you ain't got it

I've seen mature BTs drop in late Dec. Don't remember seeing little guys dropping that early

In general whitetail drop earlier than mule deer and mature deer drop earlier than immature deer. I always see WT bucks dropped by christmas. I just saw a one antlered mule buck in Republic today and was surprised. Also heard reports of mule bucks in Eastern oregon starting to shed.

Seen 4 muley bucks today at work. Decent 4 point and a wide 3 still packing. 2 different forkys with one horn. Hopefully the snow keeps from covering them the next couple weeks.
