Deer (and other animals such as elk) shed their antlers every year and then grow a complete new set.
An Arkansas-based wildlife photographer specializing in the wildlife found in Arkansas and Oklahoma. This photo reminds us that we will see new life in all areas of nature just around the corner when Springs comes. Before I became educated about deer, I would have been sad that perhaps a deer died and his antlers were left behind, but now I know it’s just their cycle of life.
UsageThe images displayed on this site may be used for any non-commercial purpose after obtaining my permission. Bucks drop their antlers depending on the amount of stress on the buck after the rut, heredity and nutrition. Last year I was scouting in Ohio on March 24 and was still finding 1-2 day old buck rubs on trees.
This all means the bucks are in good shape and should have a head start at developing good antlers this in 2013 since they’re not coming out of a nutritional deficit.
Jake had bucks on his trail cam in December with no antlers, but he has lots of bucks on his property which compete with each other during the rut. They both have a high buck population by design with lots of does to go around which is part of the reason they see more bucks than any other hunter I know.
But the deer on their property still do well nutritionally because of all the food in plots still available well into winter, lots of secure bedding, little to no hunting pressure in December, lots of winter browse from hinge cuts and natural browse from new forbs that grow due to opening up the canopy in their woods, and of course all the food they plant the following year.

Shed hunting is an addictive hobby that rewards the treasure hunter with a valuable keepsake.


Whitetail sheds are measured the same way that a normal rack is, except that no spread credit is given and no deductions for side-to-side differences are made. Sheds are only measured as singles and are scored under two separate categories — typical and non-typical. Tools can be ordered online through outdoor retailers or Boone and Crockett, or can often be found in your local hardware store.

In the United States, the middle of December to the middle of February is considered shed hunting season, when deer, elk, and moose begin to shed.

It is the responsibility of members to ensure that they are using appropriate safety measures and are trained to perform activities and use materials. For those who hunt, finding the antler of a buck you’ve had your sights on – or one that has eluded the trail camera – can be the next best thing to shooting it. Finding these ‘sheds’ is a matter of putting in the time and effort to cover ground, concentrating on winter yards, bedding areas, food sources, and trails. In order to qualify, the minimum score for a typical deer shed is 60 inches while 70 inches is needed for inclusion in the non-typical category. Abnormal points are deducted off the gross score of a typical shed, while they are added to the gross score of a non-typical shed. This will determine if the antler should be scored as a typical or non-typical shed,” Terry Merkley, an official measurer with the Foundation For The Recognition of Ontario Wildlife (FROW) explains. Sheds often accumulate in one area, and these areas are often kept secret by those who hunt there. I think when someone can find 90 to 100 inch antlers every year they are doing lots of winter scouting and doing their homework on the animals.
