    Found my first fresh shed of the year today. I was shotgun hunting with dad and while walking a ditch towards him I kicked something. Didn't even have to look to see what it was, I knew right away what I had just kicked just from the sound it made. It is no doubt a fresh one. No sun bleaching or cracking. Nice dark color. No grass grown over it. Looked for the other side but couldn't find it. Nice 4 point side. I half expected there to be 2" of skull attached to it or something but he shed it clean. Should be a nice buck next year.

    Let the games begin!

    I have a big 10 running around that lost a side the 2nd week of November. His neck was not swollen as it was Oct 20th either. I'm wondering if he got EHD and survived. I lost a big buck to EHD in late September. I've also noticed the Crush cam had 3 shed bucks showing up yesterday. EHD survivors? I don't know.

    Tree buds from the tops are like candy to a deer and this time of year. That's a lot of sheds in quick order though!
