    From here on out, better watch those antlers if you kill a buck. I got pictures of a young 8ptr that has shed one side on 12/11. Deer looks healthy? Make sure that doe you shoot isn't a buck that's already shed.

    I guess that would make it antlerless if someone shoots one that has shed both?

    I’d hate to kill a booner that had shed thinking it was a mature doe lol

    I found a shed from a 2 yr old 10 point today in front of one of my cams. Pics showed he dropped it last night. He's looking rough, looks like he was hit by a car or something within the last couple of weeks or so. Hoping he makes it, but I think he also has a broken jaw as his mouth won't close all the way. He's still eating though somehow

    Are you sure it wasn't a doe? Most women's mouths never close.

    Had a buddy that shot a pretty decent 10pt in late muzzle loading quite a few years ago. Deer ran just over the hill and fell over. When he got to him both sides had fallen off when he hit the ground! Lol

    I watched a hunting show once and a guy did exactly that. Both side came off when the deer fell. Although you can have them put back on for the mount, it wouldn't be able to get a score for the book.

    Maybe just a knack I have, but a buck is unmistakable to me even without horns.

    May have been the same buck that was hit by the state police trooper in one of the other threads on here.....
