One more today puts my total at 7 for the year (mine is the fork in the snow), and my mom found her first one today!

Took a little hike today saw a nice BT buck with about 6" new growth but could find his head gear to save my life but my dog did find this nice Rosie shed. Got a pic of him digging it out of the grass even

What do you mean by 6" new growth ?

He had new antlers growing that were 6" already
I'm going to venture a guess that it wasn't new growth but possibly a stag buck that never shed its velvet. Seems way to early for new antler growth

Took the girlfriend back out to a new spot, found a fresh little 3×2 set and a fresh forked horn. She was tired so I left her at the car and went back out for an hour or so and got lucky and found a nice 4 point with some cool antler growth! Pics will come soon

HardCorps, I made sure it was empty before I put it on my truck, I can post a better picture if you wanna see the size!
Yikes! You can clearly see the gun is loaded.

HardCorps that is my mistake my dad had set the gun down next to it while I was taking pictures and I had assumed he had already unloaded it! Defenitly a mistake I will never make again!! Thank you for pointing it out.

Got to love those lucky finds when you tell yourself "Look around, check the ditches!" As your walking grass roads, and then sure enough...https://vimeo.com/153862064

Took the girlfriend out to grayback last weekend and she was able to find her first shed, an old forked horn :IBCOOL: I felt bad cause I had to one up her with a fresh set :chuckle:

Bone, I think I would get a better reference of your great sheds if the grip of the pistol was towards you and not the barrel.   ;)
I noticed that immediately.
Not good.
