Got my deer mount back from the taxidermist today, did a real nice job. I shot this with my bow in early Sept and it was still in velvet. My best ever gun or bow, scored 154.

Finally got my first deer with a bow. Not a buck but a big doe and couldn't be happier. 15 yd shot and dropped in under 40 yds.

Sat yesterday (1-1-18) and had a doe and nub come through. Shot the doe which is the first deer in the freezer for me this year. Been a rough year so far. Did get a picture of a nice buck that made it through gun season. I hunt metro so if he holds his rack maybe i will get a chance at him in the next few weeks. Pic attached.

I have found 2 sheds already in the food plots and many bucks have shed in our area, including the mature bucks.  From my records anytime we put a string of sub zero days and nights together, weather it be Dec. Jan. or Feb.  The mass drop seems to happen.  The mature bucks seem to drop first with the stress from the cold and being run down from the rut.  And there will always be bucks that hold on longer than others as asual.--Shed

Welder,  I have a 3.5 Yr old that shed one side and i have a couple little scrapers with one or both gone already.  Not sure why,  maybe a longer cold November.  We've had a mild winter as far as snow but a rather long cold snap in the last 2 weeks.  you are correct though,  usually jan -feb and i've had bucks into march holding.  Last night I saw a one of those little bucks and 100% he had holes in his head.  

For me this late season has been very odd.  one night i see 20,  next night 2,  last night zero.  That big full moon though had to have something to do with it.  I also believe that the neighbors are baiting.  I'm seeing deer doing stuff that don't typically do.  They don't live over there and there is ZERO food in those areas.  I'm sure there is 500Lbs of corn in a pile.  I believe my neighbors to the south and west are feeding the deer.  They are not hunting,  they are just feeding which is really kind of messing with my hunting.  I have standing beans and corn,  apparently the deer would rather eat from a pile than work for it.  I should call them and ask when their pile is gone,  that must be when the deer come by me.
