About 1/8 of a mile from my house tonight the car in front of me hit a deer and then I was forced to run it over due to oncoming traffic and the car in front of me on the shoulder. I walked back 30min thinking maybe it was a buck still with antlers that I could take and count as sheds lol but the deer was gone. Not just moved to the side of the road but completely gone. Oh well. At least my car wasn't damaged. Just come hair underneath.

Found a massive half to an amazing 8 today, quite fresh. the brow on this is at least as long as the g2, without measuring my guess is 8 in. and great mass, by far my best 4pt shed, unfortunately I couldn't come up with the other side but haven't thrown in the towel on that yet. Also might add this is my second biggest shed altogether20170223_221200.thumb.jpg.f01758aee310ae20170223_220950.thumb.jpg.2a5034bac2b7a9

That's a nice one. Take a tape to that bad boy! I'm betting over 60"

I've never spotted a shed with my binoculars until this evening. I had covered a couple miles of hedgerows and creek bottoms and it was getting dark. I decided to take a short cut and headed across a green field towards the truck, glassing anything that looked suspicious. I put the binos on this one at about 100 yards away and thought it was worth a closer look. I may have to head back and check the fields a little better in this area.

On my way out I found my 3'rd dead buck of the year.

How do you think this guy died?
Could it have been hit by a car. Or are you thinking injury that aggravated into death by hunting?

Guessing he was probably shot and unrecovered by where I found him.

He was in some pretty thick stuff surrounded by treestands, a good ways from any road.

I looked over some green fields this past Sat and found one from a year or two ago. Half plowed under.

I've had a good shed season so far but not sure how much more I'll get out. I have some stand work to do next, as well as a few projects I'll be starting, and spring fishing looks to come early this year too.

Found a small half, I guess its a decent half being 2 points. Came across it more looking to find my way back to the car than looking for antlers, far from any ag feilds. Also found a dead 7 point, I'll get pics when that's clean. a4ed5453cc381165e54f8e229eb5bd99.jpg
