    Sheds anyone?

    When do the sheds start dropping in central MT? I went out saturday and saw a 140 class 4 point packing both sides. All the bucks around my place are still packing both sides as well. Interesting enough I saw a small 3 point and 4 point doing some light sparring last week. Im itching to get out there and find some nice browns!

    Here in Nv they should be falling off already but we have had such warm weather I think everything is all screwed up. As far as finding sheds the deer aren't in winter range due to no winter. I think it's gonna be real tough this year to find any

    Started here in the Bitterroot in mid-January. Yesterday my buddy found three nice brownies, but I have seen quite a few bucks still packing. They should be mostly on the ground by the last week of this month.

    It all just depends.. A lot of times the bigger bucks will drop earliest, but it also varies based on nutrition and such. I've seen some whitetails dropped, some still packin' and some mule deer dropped already. Mule deer usually dont start until about the same time the elk drop with is usually the very end of this month into next month with the majority around middle of March. For here anyways With the weird winter we have had, it may have them all messed up.

    At least we can all be glad they're only MESSED-UP from the warm weather instead of DEAD because of a bad winter

    I was thinking the same thing until we just got a big snow storm.. ugh! A few inches of fresh snow is so un-fun when youre looking for sheds!
