The first shed report of 2016 is in from Kelly Kirsch, one of the best and most passionate antler hunters we have here on BIG DEER. Thanks Kelly and keep us posted w/future updates:

SD shed report

Mike: It has started in southeast SD. I watched this deer two weeks ago, he put his head down to feed and when he lifted it up again the antlers were gone! Went out the next afternoon so as to not spook the other bucks from the area, and here is what I found. A matched set is the way to start! They were picked 1-6-2016.

We have tons of snow cover here so it will be awhile before it’s worth the walking.–Kelly     

Cool, everybody send me your shed reports!
