Default the good bad and ugly of shed hunting

me and my fiance went out this weekend and did really good at finding them. we found a bunch of sheds old and new but we also found two really nice bucks dead both of which i have trail cams pics of all through the season. really disapointing to know you try your best to manage the herd just to find these. the bigger of the two had a gun shot to the back 2 ribs.. i dont know about the other. he was pretty much picked clean by yotes. the worst part is thatthere is only 5 people who hunt our hugefarm and i know they didnt shoot at either one. oh well alot of sheds to show that many more made it through to bigger next year. found about the same amount of sheds last week also but dont have any pics of those sorry.
hope you enjoy these pics.

Well there's alot to be grateful for.

1. Spending time out with your fiance.

2. Being in the great outdoors.

3. Finding some nice sheds.

But I wouldn't jump and think you might have trespassers and/or poachers. The deer you found could have been shot who knows where - they just finally laid down and died where you found them.

We've found the same.

And congrats on the upcoming knot tying.

very unfortunate about the dead buck, but you know its offspring will be coming up in the ranks shortly!!
