They were about 1/10th of a mile from each other (per my gps). 

Nice work! How far apart were they?

Always a thrill to find them.  Are you going to put them on a plaque?

Not sure yet, but likely.. Iíve also seen fake skulls to attach them to, to look like a euro mount as well, those look cool too.
    just kinda crazy, the whole reason Iíve been out looking so hard is to find a few deer sheds to use as a knife handle. No way I can cut up this Beaty set of sheds now! Lol.. iíll Be back at it this weekend.
   Canít  believe how addicting it is! I really like the fact that even if I donít ever draw that super hard to get tag, I still have a chance at least finding some awesome trophy antlers. Really enjoying all the hiking time Iím getting in as well!

don't go after they drop. all of my shed hunting is during deer season while hunting. you have less competition and you find way more, big ones, too
You know your hunt went well when you had a shot that was unethical and you never took it, even if you never got your bull.
