I'm not very well educated on shed hunting, but all these bucks still packing antler begs a couple questions (in my opinion):
Is this an indication of the bucks physical condition?
Do they hang onto antler if they are in really good shape? Let them go early if they are in poor shape? Or the other way around?
Or is it still a touch early & we're just coming to the time of year when they all drop?
