I went out for a while yesterday afternoon. No sheds but saw 2 bucks with full antlers still. One is a real nice one. I did find a Primos “Hot Dog” predator call half buried in the leaves/dirt. Took it home rinsed it out and it works perfect. I’m going out again this morning.

I’m in Will County. I walked for 2 1/2 hrs today, even saw 2 green rubs but no drops yet. Pretty soon though as I see some are finding them already.

There’s always a few that drop early but you’re just gonna push deer onto other properties walking it now.  The bigger deer will be gone before you even knew they were there.

A week ago my wife found 1/2 of a nice 10PT and one she couldn’t get because it was froze in the ground.  Me I have to trip over them before I find one, heck I went out to get the one froze in the ground and never could find it.  Did find a nice big full carcass 8 pt.
not sure what got it as yotes had started on it.

Just checked 5 trail cams from last 5 days. Had photos of 8 different bucks and all still had both antlers.

I saw a buck in the backyard on Wednesday and his antlers must have just fell off. You could still see the red in the sockets.

There was a nice 8 pointer walking around behind the house the other day. Full antlers still. Damn cold is hanging on late this year. Looking for some rain and thaw to get out and look.

Found a nice set today (2-24-15) while checking my trail cams. They were 4’ apart in a bean field. This buck had these antlers on 3 days ago (caught on my trail cam), so there are just starting in my area….

First year in probably 20 I haven’t even been out yet.  Been nursing a bad heel and working a lot of 12 hour days.  When I do feel good it snows!  Still hope to get out but it’s not looking good.
