Hey Guys,
Just read through most of the sticky's provided by SwampBuck, cool stuff. Most of it seems to be geared around your timing. Which obviousy posses the question of when is the best time? I like in Cumberland, just outside of Portland, ME. Any ideas on if now is too early, or what the best time is for the state? Thanks!

Happy Holidays!
AJA

I wouldn't be surprised if a few bucks have started dropping antlers already. The best time would be whenever the snow starts melting in the spring and exposes sheds that have been hidden under the snow for the winter. However, any time that it doesn't snow for a while during the winter is a good time to get out there. I plan to try my luck whenever we get a break in the snowstorms, or if we happen to get a thaw and/or rain during the winter months.

I'm anxious to start searching for deer sheds. So far I've found two moose sheds from this year which really got me pumped for shed hunting.
