    I have found 6 moose sheds so far.. ;D
     

  3. I talked to a guy yesterday, his son inlaw was down by Detroit and seen 18 bucks all still had antlers, so he went and checked out at his shack in Stanton Mi, 5 bucks with antlers.
    what is happening with all that. I seen 5 bucks during muzzleloading, all had one antler missing. I thought they were loosing them back in Dec. This seems to be a strange year.

    The last one on here I actually got to see alive and the left side is some kinda funky i'm guessing from an injury and the buck's antler that is broken off has no burr around it, it looks like it just continues out of its skull...who knows

    Nina, i do plan on it! They have a few chew marks from the squirrels or mice but after they were stained it hid the chew marks pretty good. i have access to a 22 inch cape. so i think ill go with that . but yeah cant wait to mount it up. i watched this deer all winter. hes fenced in at one of my job sites . Next year hopefully hes bigger.

  15. I started hunting for them last weekend; I may live in Pittsburgh, but I've seen deer both near my house and in some of the parks closer to the city. One can only hope...

    Nice finds so far! The only sheds I have are ones given to me (will post pics when I get them up...)
