Default Sheds...WIERD! and more Sheds

I went out today to do a little shed hunting. I ended up finding one 4 point side. When i picked it up i thought it looked aweful familiar to the one that i had found back in early december when i was goose hunthing, but i couldnt remember if it was the same side or opposite sides. Just got back to the house and it turns out that it was definately from the same deer. Crazy that i found it 3 months later and it hadnt been chewed on at all!



Found another onetoday. Looks like it was from last year...it waschewed uppretty bad

That is a good find, how long do you suppose he could have carried the second part of the rack before shedding it?

It is strange that some can be in the woods a few weeks and be chewed up and others can lay there for a year and not be touched.


This was a deer that my daughter LOST a year(all most to the day) from when it was found by the farmer.


There wasn't 1 single bite mark.

How far apart were they?

The biggest one I found was 106 3/8" and the other side was found 5 months later and .8 of a mile away. I was amazed that he didn't drop them closer, being that they were that big.

I have noticed that when i find dead heads that the animals seem to leave them alone and hardly every chew on them...

They were probably a half mile away...pretty crazy. The one i found today didnt have any waxy residue or hair at the base. Looks like it had bee dropped for a while

Wonder why that is.There was another one found about the same area that was chewed up pretty bad.

Well i think that it has a lot to do with if it has the skin and meat still on it. If so i think the squirrels will stay away...
