Default NC Sheds

Anyone from NC finding sheds yet? I have spent considerable time on good dirt with no luck. Let me know what you're finding out there.

Only seen a few that have dropped, most were still carrying last week but they may be falling fast anytime now. I'm waiting until march.

Just checked my cams yesterday and they were all carrying both sides.

Checked my camera in northeast Georgia today. Though I have found one shed this year, I didn't get a single picture of a buck that had shed an antler. All of them still had both sides.

That's good to know! Hopefully in the next week or two they'll start dropping.

Oh trust me, it is not easy! Some people are just lucky and some really do have good places to go. But make no mistake about it, even if you have 500 acres fenced in, you still have to walk several miles to have a chance at finding them!

I don't have a walkometer, but if I did, I bet it would say close to 7 miles already and 2 antlers to show for it!
