Found a 62 inch shed this past weekend! Squirrels had already started to nibble on it. Has an 8inch base!!! My third shed of the year in Adams Co. IL...

Just a reminder to make multiple trips to your shed hunting area even if you looked already. I'm still seeing deer with both sides. Saw an absolute monster with 5 does yesterday evening. I guess the first real cold snap, then warmer weather triggered a drop earlier this month. Alot of bucks still have horn, but alot have dropped. Keep looking and good luck!

I found a nice shed from a ten guessing together the deer will score mid 140s. I also found a dead 7 pointer would have been a crazy looking next year.

I went out yesterday and didn't find anything in 5 hours of walking. Maybe I'm missing them, but the areas full of bucks.

Well, I'm up to 9 sheds so far this year. 7 of them have come off of one farm (200 acres).

Found one thatfell from apotential150 class. Found 3 more that likely came from bucks around the 110's-120's. Also found my first matching set ever! Gonna give it another try this week after taking a week off for vacation. Keep looking they're still out there!
