Found this out in the marsh today. Almost a stones throw from a Great Lake


Take your bow and a quiver full of arrows, and go out into the open country to hunt some wild game for me.

Not the biggest set of sheds but it is the first complete set I have ever found. They were up in this bed. I am trying to find the 8 pt I have pictures of hanging with this guy. All in all it was a great scouting trip.

Well had a good year shed hunting put lots of miles on the boots and just flat out enjoyed being outdoors. Went out any chance I got and combined this with some great scouting and gathering Intel for this season.

Found this beast on the edge of a swamp.. thickest bases I've wrapped my hands around. Wonder what he looked like before his antlers got chewed up.
Image

Found this dead head nice buck with some character, notice the little sticker coming out of his left base.
Image

Found 9 sheds total this year along with the two dead heads. The small pair facing each other is a matched set a small 5 pt. One shed was so old I left it there and one other that's missing from this pic I gave to a friend for his young son to have.

Finally picked up a couple of fresh sheds. Early greenup and late shedding isn't a good combo. My brother did beat me to several of the "easy" ones in the food plots though.

Swampyak I found him on a point between some tall grass and swamp..so I'd say on a transition and a point...

Went for a walk today to play with my turkey calls and do a little scouting. Found this on a deer trail coming from redbrush to an empty pond. No luck finding his match.

Found a small shed today at work and one scouting afterward. Both are very small and the one looks to be a couple years old. I've actually walked past it several times but must have never noticed it. Because there nothing to write home about I'm not going to post pictures right now, but they will be in my years total photo when I decide to give up shed hunting for the year.
