    Found these yesterday while walking creek bottoms cutting evergreens. Matched set with the 2nd antler being about 400yds from the 1st. Hope this is a sign of a good shed season. With a 19" spread this guy woulda went right at 169. Puts me up to 3 fresh sheds on the year. Anyone else finding any?

    I haven't started to look yet. But that's a great buck, he'll be very nice next year.

    awesome i have been training a shed dog cant wait to see how she does.
  4. Found one of last year's sheds this bow season. Preserved very well. Buddy of mine found one in the middle of the road at Crane Naval Station in Indiana. Went today for 10 minutes in a bedding area near my house where I usually find some, but there was nothing.

    Picture doesn't do them much justice. Heres the measurements. I can't believe I found a set already. These were found on the ranch I work on. On my personal ground my deer still have theirs. I have been seeing some one horned bucks this week its just a little early to go.

    150 2/8 on horn. 19inch spread is what I think looks normal on him 18 puts his brows at a funny angle and 20 is too wide
