why no sheds?
i have found almost every part of most of the common birds and mammals that live in my region, from bones to fur to feathers to scales to skulls. but despite sometimes daily visits from whitetail deer in our woods and our yard, including quite a few good sized bucks, i have never found a shed antler. i have heard that mice and other rodents will gnaw them, but it’s hard to believe that such small creatures can make entire thick-beamed 10 point buck antlers just disappear. i am not a deer hunter, but i do dream of trophies hiding in the woods.
