Be thankful for today knowing it will never last

Hunted a lot of acres! As many deer as are around - sheds are light until a little mouse eaten... usually I trip over them in the tall grass!

Yes coon hunting is tough on the day job.
Sometimes you just never know where these sheds will be.Along fence lines where they jump over sometimes and sometimes along the edges of the woods.We walked around another 2 hours today and did'nt find a one.

Was out rabbitt hunting last year around this time and found a nice shed antler and then was rabbit hunting this year in the same area and come across the match from last year it was a little weathered but still in great condition.  So I mounted the two together.

I work at a Church and one of my jobs is picking up the cemetery. In the spring I found these laying between the grave stones.

Cool hunterbob.That's a big boy you found there.Finding the mate a year later not eaten up is pretty lucky.
I bet those horns would make a racket gong underneath and through a lawn mower I imagine Brian S.....lol.

Yea I was lucky to find the other half a year later.  A tree fell on it and I just happen to look down at the right time.

My crew mate found these as we were putting out a grass fire last night.  They were about 20' apart.  Good thing I didn't run them over with our brush truck! :o

Sweet find! It's mostly catch and release here till they lift the ban on gathering sheds! April 1st can't get here soon enough! But it will give me time to knapp some "Turkey Bullets!" Gonna stick one for sure this year! :G

Really nice balanced find of sheds Jon Kaw.Pretty pair.Personally I've run them kind through a tires on my truck fetching dogs a coon hunting.Tire goes down in a hurry.....lol.
Believe there might be a burning ban here as of lately for lack of rain.Things are pretty dry out.Unbelievable how with the slightest wind how fast a grass fire can move.Almost have to witness it to believe it.
We scoured the area here again for sheds but with no luck.

Yeah Beadman, it's pretty dry around here too, but everyone's trying to get their CRP burned by the contract date or get pasture burned before they put cows out.  When the county allows burning everyone lights up at the same time.  Makes for a busy day.  At least I get to cruise the pastures and find cool stuff. 8)

Our snow is just about gone so maybe I can get some real shed hunting in and no worries of grass fires  (=) with snow melt. Brian S.  what a great place to lay around and shed your horns  in a cemetery no hunting and not a heck of a lot of visitors in the winter :-D (S) (S) Bob
