Went on a good hike and come up empty! But driving out spotted this monster bull winkle from the truck

Sometimes animals drag them around and chew on them.   I've been down a skid road in late spring, only to return later in the year and find one right in the middle of it.

Don't have a pic but my first shed was found in Sept some years ago. After setting up elk camp in went for a drive and spotted a elk shed only 30 yards from the road and 60 yards from a another elk camp.
Don't know how many times the drove by it and never saw it  :chuckle: :chuckle:

And this was up devil creek in the Nile unit.

There are some really nice finds on here. 

I have found a few over the years in the road but only a couple.  I have found more in the ditch beside the road.  I think when the animals jump the ditch and land it is sometime just enough of a jolt to pop them loose.  Just a theory.   

Growing up the neighbor use to feed cattle round bales and sometime grain when finishing out.  The Deer use to come in and eat out of the bins and we use to find several sheds around the feeding area.  Sometimes a pair off the same deer.

That's a nice find, especially on mainline. Which gate were you in?

Nice on from the mainline.  I love the color of that one!

Yeah that's damn lucky, imagine how many log truck drivers come across. Did you look around for the other side?

That's about as fresh as they get.  Don't think a shed would last 1 day on a kapowsin mainline.

Me and my girls found a real nice one on a main line in there and it had been there at least a week. It was already dry on the end. It's amazing what people will miss, I saw it poking out of the grass at about 30mph but I'm always looking

Still to this day never found a shed. Guess I'm just not spending enough time out there. :bash: work.. Between 3-4 hours of driving and 5 8-11h shifts. Not much free time. Im jelly of all you guys :chuckle:

I looked for the other side but no luck. My buddy found one laying right in the middle of the road on the 3 last year.
