With both my kids filling their tags before gun week I was looking forward to maybe getting in a little hunting of my own. I found a good buck that was coming out quite regular on my neighbor. The deer are hitting the green grass due to there being zero acorns around this year. I hung a stand and was prepared to hit it all week of gun. Unfortunately I became extremely ill and never was able to hunt much. The Dr's finally figured out my problem and I'm on the mend and was looking forward to getting after this buck that I had been seeing.

Unfortunately Drew and I found one of his sheds yesterday afternoon while rabbit hunting. It wasn't there the day before because we had walked through there. It really sucks that he shed this soon but oh well......

Glad you're felling better, that sucks he shed but have talked to a couple guys that have seen bucks shed already.
Gonna be some bucks killed with no antlers the next gun season and muzzy season that guys think are does.

I have the same thoughts, poor nutrition, less does, etc. I seen this deer the Sunday eve before gun and he was with several does. The way November went and it being a trickle rut there is no doubt that he was still hitting does gun week. He must of blew a final load and his racked popped off, lol. We hunted this same deer until the final weekend last season and he carried both sides into March when I quit running cams. We looked everywhere for his rack thru turkey season but never found it. This year we literally trip over it in December in the wide open, lol. We have a good history going so hopefully one of the kids get to whack him next yr!
