Might still be too early to look.  Last night I saw 2 HUGE bucks walking together along a field edge with both antlers.  This was near Farmington.  I am still not going to shed hunt my primary area so as not to push any deer out.

I checked cameras last weekend and most bucks were still packing.  I did a nice set though.  I’m hoping to get out in a few weeks after I recover from surgery.

I took a quick swipe through our woods this morning and found a pair.  Problem was, they were my rattlin’ antlers I’d left at my treestand! LOL.  I set out the trail camera and will probably check back next weekend to see what the camera shows. I’ve seen several bucks over 100” and one over 150” with both sides still on.  The 150” was in front of my car one night last week, and I stopped and watched him run in my headlights for about 200 yards, just HOPING he’d jar one or both loose!

If it runs, flies, or drives, I’m interested!

Good idea!  I’ve seen him 3 times on my way home from the lady-friend’s house, and the first and second time I had the chance to “accidentally” not hit the brakes soon enough, but I let him walk!  This time he must’ve known it was me!  BUT, I figure it’d be better to get my hands on his antlers because of an arrow, not a Pontiac LOL
