Awesome! Nothing like seeing antlers to make one wish it was the fall already. Good work on getting out there and finding where the deer are.

I hadn't had a chance to go shed hunting much this year. But I did find this turkey hunting. It is a MASSIVE rack. It's too bad that the 'yotes and critters got ahold of it before I did. I cannot imagine how big this rack would have been intact. I have cleaned it up since these pictures were taken. I will post the cleaned up version tomorrow. It measured 19" wide (what was left) and had 4"+ brow tines.

Default shed antlers

I walked miles & miles & miles... without exaggeration, I walked at least 10 miles on 15 different days! It was my best year yet! Here are some pics of the 26 I've found... an average of about 1 every 4+ miles of walking!

Here are the highlights of our 2011 shedding season.

We picked up this matched set shortly after the snow melted. They have 6 3/4 inch bases and each score in the mid 80's. We have 3 antlers off this deer now.

My wife found this one side (we couldnt find the other) off a buck that I missed with my bow last fall, it is around 77".

Here are a few "daily summaries" of our finds this spring

Shed hunting is a great way to spend more time in the woods after season. Unfortunately the majority of the area me and my team hunt is private land. There is a lot of posted land making it difficult to stay on a bucks tracks when looking for sheds. There are also a lot of other hunters and non hunters out looking for a nice set of horns, so remember the more time you spend in the woods the better of you are.

i wish i had this one "sweetie buck". i posted this in another forum.

This buck was found last year not very far from where i hunt. Richards brother showed me some of the pics they had taken right after they found it. What a huge buck!!! They were afraid that the state was going to keep it. here is a link to the article in field and stream.
