    I pull mine once the bucks in my area have shed out. Usually by March or so most years.

    I pulled mine already this year, we dont get a lot of wintering on our property once they blast the food plot.. In the past I ran them year around/left them most of the spring just so deer got used to them on the trees...it amazes me how many times they will stop and look at a camera strapped on even if its been there awhile

    I may keep one on the outskirts and put some corn down to keep an eye on shed bucks and such, but once season is over I want to leave the deer alone.

    This year I pulled mine November 2. I was pretty much done hunting and didn’t want to deal with it anymore.
    Normally I wait till the middle of January to pull them.

    Other than cameras for security purposes, I'll pull them all once they are shed out.

    I pulled mine after shotgun and have already put a couple back out to monitor when the bucks shed. I'll have more out over bales of alfalfa here within the next week. Shed season is approaching and I'm beyond excited!!

    I leave some out year round, as I’m monitoring more than just deer.

    I might try the dummy shed antler this year with a camera, anyone ever done that--with success?

    I usually leave mine until end of March-mid April to catch any bucks still holding antlers. A couple will be over hay and others on trails to food.
