Another pic of it. I deff think it was from last year. Backbones, pelvis, and ribs were everywhere. Shame, great deer

How can you be so sure? Is it wearing a gold bracelet and stink like Drakkar?

If one wants to restore bleached antlers , I've used Golden Oak stain, it comes out ok . There is a guy who sells " Antler  Magic" that is supposed to work,real well. It's hard to find even on the net, and he's somewhat " blunt " with people at times.

I have his email and he says he is still selling it, if anyone wants . A sample size does like 40 antlers .

Golden Oak before / after. You can use steel wool to whiten up the tips and knock down the shine , some take them outside and rub up tress, but the neighbors already are not  sure what to think....

The rain let up this afternoon so I decided to take a walk, get some exercise and look around for sheds. I decided to look in an area where I had a trail cam set up last winter and it showed a few bucks passing through. I saw the first shed about 30 yards away and was surprised to find such a beauty. As I picked it up, the other side caught my eye as it was laying only 8ft away! This is a jackpot shed find for me. It's only the second time I've found both sides and my best pair to date. I also found the 4pt skull in some thick thorns. A lucky day for sure.

good choice of beer too!

 

I had to celebrate that one with a cold beer for sure! It has me gearing up to do some serious shed hunting in the weeks ahead.

Couldn't get into the rifle range today the line was out the door.  So went for a walk followed a set of tracks and found a fresh shed with blood on it. Started doing circles looking for the other one but had no luck did find a little one from last year. Hopefully this snow melts by next week.

Finds so far this year.  I think most are still holding here in western Ny. Not finding the numbers compared to last year at this time

Most of mine are still holding in 8P according to cams. I haven't even started searching yet. Neighbor picked up a match set to a 4pt this weekend in a WW plot.

I looked for a few hours Saturday morning and found a small one. The bright sunny days are my least favorite shed hunting days, just too much glare. I'll check a few cams this week to see if they are still holding onto their crowns.

That 13 point head is quite the find!

I just saw a nice half rack in that cleared woods on Youngs Rd across from the driving range.
All you folks in the Buffalo area know exactly where I mean. He's not huge but his sheds would be a nice find. He ran full out the entire length of the field

Went out again this morning got a little turned around. Came across this poor little guy. I understand nature but hate when we cause things like this to happen. I cut one off the same fence line a few years ago at least he lived. No sheds today.
