The only place I have seen deer drop this early is S.W. Kansas! Found a drop with Blood on it Dec 31st. I am sure a few have fallen off, but I go out before Turkey season and seem to do the best!!! Found 23 of on property out East and no matches, in fact most were from the same side!! Next time I went out , started to find the matches!!!!!!!!!
Up here in Northwest, CO and Eastern Utah Deer are starting to drop finally. With this mild winter they're hang on to them alittle longer that ussual. Have been raking alot of year old sheds. Elk should start dropping in this area in about a month for the norm, but have seen and heared about a few elk that are running around aready with one left.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
