    I noticed a dog in one of your pictures. Did you train him/her to help you find them?

    No, she's not trained. She did her part however. She ran up to me with a section of spine in her mouth while i was walkin a deer trail... she had come from up the trail, the direction i was headed... so i knew to look a little harder.

    They have to be alive to drop their horns.

    None of these bucks were found around where i hunt.. just land i have permission to shed hunt on, where no hunting is allowed. the 8 i found most recent, was likely an ehd fatality.

    Thought you posted some of these before. Lol find something better to waste your time on and quit making up stories.

    Apparently no hunting means shooting deer to rot. That isn't hunting but wouldn't hunting there be a novel idea for population control and utilizing meat instead?? (retorical question so don't answer)

    T3,yes, i have posted some of them before... but i figured i would post up everything i have found to date... by no hunting, i mean i asked for permission to shed hunt , not deer hunt... hence me saying no hunting allowed. What do you mean by saying i am making up stories?

    I cannot control what a farmer does on his own land, nor do i care... the land is in his name and he pays the taxes on it so he can do what he wants on it as long as it is legal... and yes, what he does is legal, he has the neccessary permits to shoot deer on sight.

    It seems like every post i make a few specific guys come in and run the post down hill right out of the gate... if you think that it will run me off like some of you have done with others on this forum, think again... as long as im within the guidelines and follow the rules of the forum, im doing no harm here and will stay as long as i please. So, until a moderator throws me out... deal with it... i aint goin nowhere.

    Went and walked our 100 acre hunting property up towards virginia today. Stepped foot in the woods at 12pm, and was back in the truck at 7:15. Still no sheds.

  19. So, are found skulls with racks just common property? I was unsure about how that works. If I had to guess, I would think that it'd work like finding roadkill: you can possess and keep it if you treat it like a harvest, and it is in season; but that is with trapping furbearers in my state. Just a guess; I don't know about your state laws for deer.

    They can be picked up and kept any time of the year.... no other action required for possession.
