A couple of years back, my cousin shot a small 6 point on the last ML Saturday. When we strolled up to it, it was antlerless.
I asked if he was sure it was a buck and he was so certain, he spent a couple hours in the thicket finding both sheds.
He did the honorable thing of tagging it as a buck.
Found sheds in December, seen em still packing in May. New a guy that found one about 20 years ago day before Green River WMA hunt first weekend in November, a guy camping next to him killed the deer the next morning, and he gave it to him, perfect match, big 10 point.
