I watched my trail camerareligously all Winter,I kept it aimed on my salt and mineral lick and when Archery Season was over I would spread out some corn to help the Deermake it through the freezing rain,sleet and snow we had late in the year.The Bucks kept their antlers up until the middle of Feb. then they started showing up without their head gear so I started walking different area's each time I went out for a walk or went to check my trail camera.I looked and looked for several months...finally I found a small 3-Point rack off a young Buck out in an open field close to our Pond.I had pictures of a nice 8-Point Buck,a Spike Buck and the 6-Point Buck that I found the right hand side of and that was it.

Pike them are some nice sheds! I have been lucky over the years with all public land and some private land to find what I have found. I have been shed hunting since 1998 and have found 118 sheds with 10 scored already that made the books and 4 that will make it from this year. Here is a picture of my monster shed that I found last year.

To bad that big one was found by the squirrels! I have one of the NASHC t-shirts that says "Save a shed Shoot a Squirrel". I love it!

I have seen a deer carry one side to the next. For some reason I am not sure why but he did grow a second antler on that side and they attatched to each other. He lost them during the next shed season but to this day no one has ever been able to tell me why that buck did that.
