Default Shed hunting finds.

Shed hunting doesn't only result in finding deer atlers. You can various amounts of things out in the woods. Especially near creeks were anything can be found from were people upstream threw it in. So post anything and everything! (Don't forget pics of the antlers you do find!)

I've managed to find many various bottles and other junk, a flashlight, bones, boots, a little raccoon statue, two deer skulls (one doe, one buck), a coyote's jaw bones, and later found his skull about 30yrds away. No sheds yet.

All I kept were the buck skull and the raccoon statue. The doe skull was really old so I left it there. The coyote skull smelled horrible so I left it also. Everything else was useless exept one unique bottle which I don't have a picture of.

Here are some pics of the buck skull.





He's a decent 8 point. I actually wanted to find a skull so I guess it was a perfect find because he isn't big enough to upset me that he died and he looks nice next to the skull my dog found a couple years ago.


All those hours of walking on the weekends and scratches from thorns is finally paying off.

Master chief I've been doing this for 35years.Trust me if you bring home every little thing you find,you will need to rent storage space.In 35 years I've found more than 100 racked skulls maybe even more I've lost count.Now if it aint a biggun or something with unusal character I cut the horns off.My wife might have had just a little influence on that decision.1wall in my living room I strung a piece of barbed wire across the top and used maybe 50 of my bigger antlers as a border(actually my wifes idea) it looks pretty good.
In all the years I've done this I have found everything from old bottles & stolen vechicles.Once I found a dead body.That was a little creepie.So keep your eyes open the possibilitys are endless.

I've only been a few times so as of now I'm keeping every buck skull of decent size I find. I'm sure by the time I've been doing it as long as you I'll be throwing out some for space though. I'll keep that one though because it's the first set of antlers I've ever found. And I like the barbed wire idea. Seems like it would look cool.

I hope you reported the stolen vehicles and definately the body lol
