    Went out in the rain today and found 4 sheds, one was the largest Ive ever found. 26" main beam, carries mass out close to the end.

    Nice find should be a real good one by the time next hunting season rolls around.

    Its possible but our big bucks go nocturnal soon after the season starts, alot of pressure and too many does plus two large sanctuary properties.

    Bucks have no boundries, that buck could end up in your lap when he is out on a date. You just never know.

    Yep, a friend of mine shot a buck that had been ear tagged for research 41 miles from where he was tagged just months before. They can cover lots of ground

    Found a set almost a half mile apart. Found the right side then was walking a fence row and found the left one at the base of a small tree, looked like he was feeling a little lopsided so he rubbed it on the tree to knock it off. Never found a set that far apart before.

    I would suspect that those sheds are from two different deer. The age is about all they have in common.

    They lay on the floor a little different which might make them look a little different but the measurements are almost identical except for the brows which are an inch apart and one has an extra point off the base which is a common trait in that area , same coloring and when you hold them up the points like up. They look like a perfect match. They are for sure from the same deer.
