Stray Casts will intelligently report and observe, hopefully with a touch of wit, on daily occurrences, reports and releases related to Chicago-area outdoors from bucks to bass to birds to bugs

Chicago outdoors: Shed of the Week

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I believe this would qualify as the first Shed of the Week.

Barry Chapman of Calumet City found these shed antlers on a bed on a power line Feb. 23 in Cook County.

Timing is certainly right for thinking of starting SOTW as a weekly feature about now. Whitetail deer peak in shedding their antlers in late February.

Email nominations for SOTW for the Sun-Times outdoors page on Sundays to straycasts@sbcglobal.net; for that matter, send nominations for Buck of the Week: Unplugged or Wild of the Week there, too.
