So far at 16 sheds and one skull.  This snow isn't making things any easier.  I've really been giving the mulies a break this year as I figured they needed it.  the whitetails don't seem to get too bothered though.  I'll have to figure out how to post some pics for you.  I have already posted most of them on other threads, but will try to get some new ones for this site.

I haven't found any deer sheds yet but found 5 moose sheds. Three of them score in the mid 50" range. Too much snow covering the ones I haven't found.  Now, we'll have wait till the snow melts to look for more.

I'm jealous buckblaster.  I LOVE moose, but don't get into very many when shedding.  I guess the occasional one, but not many.  I have an area in the panhandle I want to check out.  I bet it gets some dandies in the wintertime.

Sun was out, but after logging about 5 miles in the deep snow, I only came up with one old muley shed.  There is always tomorrow. :'(

Bone, i live on the westside of the state but have a really good friend in Wenatchee.  So we search the mission, swakane, and entiat units for sheds.  I try to get over there a few times a year but this year i havent went over yet.  I think he is in the 50-60 shed range so far.  But he said that he hasnt found anything really fantastic yet.  Lots of smaller 3s and 4s.

ones like these are what we normally find.  Hope you find some monsters.

Nice antlers.  that is getting to be a zoo over there as your friend surely knows, especially if he has that many antlers already.  Those guys are lined up out there in January watching and waiting.  I used to do some of that country a few yar ago, but then the big fire came through.  It should be getting back to normal.

I haven't been out much, and haven't found any yet, but I have seen a few "bald" bucks near the Olympia area.

Haven't been out for a few, I think I'll go up next weekend and take a look.
That's my one shot.

I saw about 30 Clockum bulls yesterday , 5 had shed.  I'll see if I can get some pics on here.  My battery died, so I was limited.  I only found one muley shed. :(

There were 18 Roosevelts in my pasture yesterday evening.  Saw another dozen just out of Tenino.  All the bulls have dropped already.  Pretty early for around here.

I went out again yesterday.  Saw another 30 bulls.  This time about 18 have dropped, so just over half.  Do you think I could find the bone?  oh heck no!  Too many other fellows camped on them, and it wasn't my lucky day I guess.
