How long do you wait after season to look for sheds?

I don't believe for a second that is real. Look closely at the photo. It is not a doctored digital photo. They just held another antler (or piece of one) behind the main beam. Notice how he always needs two hands to hold it. You also never see the actual split or intersection of the horn. Also, his hand is always hiding where the interscetion should be. Just a couple of kids with nothing to do. Also, most four wheeler I know would have crushed that horn.

This type of stuff make me question the validity of this website.

May or may not be real. If its real they can post up a photo with the junction visible.

FWIW though, double beams are not that uncommon. I don't hunt all that much and have seen 3 here in TX. My nephew shot one that had double mains on both sides except one was snapped off already. I was hunting a wide 12 point one fall when we looked into the field and there was a double beam on one side and my buddy has always wanted one so we let him shoot it. And another friend has video from last fall of one that was too narrow to shoot by our local rules. Excepting a youth hunter shot it by mistake later on.....

So while this one may or may not be, they aren't that uncommon just to not believe it period.

I know double beams are not uncommon - I also know this one is not real. No harm done. Like I said, Kids having fun. Although, lets not OOOH & AAAH over something fake.

Don't get mad at me, glad you aren't yet. I've looked the photo over a fair amount. It could be a fake. Thats a given. Funny you don't see the junction on either picture. Yet as I look at it there is a bunch of tension holding the second beam. And it appears that the actual main beam is not resting on his arm in the first picture. While there is considerable pressure from the injured arm holding the main beam between 1-2(IIRC). After looking at that, he would have to be holding a considerable amount of weight in strange places. IF I were doing this the end of the main beam would be resting on my right arm solidly while grasping it lower with my left hand. Then it would be supported and I'd only have to hold a spike lightly in the right place. As it stands now there is a bunch of pressure on the "fake beam" and if thats correct it would almost have to be attached to deal with the pressures given, or at minimum a good balancing job.

I'm only looking at it from the opposite opinion of you though. Not that it matters much. Guess it would be better to have the kids messing with photos than other things....
