Cleaned this one up, if you want to circle the location and repost make sure you keep it clean and watch the comments fellas, family friendly.  :tup:

A nice BT shed that I found.  I had to long arm it to get the shed in the picture.
Cut em!

No worries it was harmless at first but then just kept snowballing to the point that it just all had to be deleted to get the thread back on track.

Carry on.

Here is my first shed found in 2017. I was setting cameras up and saw it just off the mail elk highway. Found 3 spike sheds in my life, never a branched bull.

First blacktail shed of the year for me, as I found it today. I think it's fair to say it hadn't been down long.

Went for a walk with Grandpa, lucked out on one of my first sheds, I never find sheds. I think I have found less that 10 sheds in my life, this is the biggest deer shed I've ever found

Not a shed but found this after a few hours of slipping & tripping in some deeper woods. Of course I left it there,

The Branch was not very heavy - I think the skull has been there a few years, under the cedar tree collecting debris. Could have been clobbered though, hard to say,

Talk about blending in! It would be very easy to walk by that without seeing it.
