Pretty poor here in MS too. Found 1 so far. Bucks down here shed later than most other areas. Remember our rut peaks near the end of Dec. Normally where I hunt in MS the bucks start dropping sheds around the end of the 1st week of March. The earliest I've found any in MS was the last week of February.
Didn't find any when I was up in MO during the 1st week of Feb. Thought that was odd. When I get back to MO for the opening of their turkey season, I'll be looking for some.
