Title: 2016 Sheds...Post them here!
Post by: fishnfur on January 01, 2016, 06:18:49 PM
I might as well start it.  Way too nice a day to sit around all day inside.  Grabbed the pooch and hit the hills.  Only out about 45 minutes before she found her first ever (that I know of).  Last year's or more likely a two year old shed based on the mottled appearance.  It wasn't the BT shed I was hoping to find, but still a great way to start the new year!

Take a look at that base, I'm thinking he got to fighting and broke it off a couple months early from last year, but I'm not sure. What do you guys think?

It was just holding blood from last year, esp by the way it was laying. Stand it on end and drain the rest out before you bring it inside :chuckle:

Thank you blackveltbowhunter, you got some nice heavy BT sheds yourself! And Lewy your right I got it draining now, I've found a couple like this and boy they can really smell haha but that chunk of bone still attached to the base and the piece taken out of the main beam is what makes me wonder if it wasn't ready to come off yet

You're right.  No way is that a normal shedding situation.  It caused a good bit of force to break it off like that.  Could be because of a fight with another bull or some serious raking of the ground or something.

When do blacktails and elk on the west side start really dropping antlers? I have been out a lot the last 2 years in February, March and parts of April but have never had any luck. Looking forward to searching again this year!

yeah that area is pretty grassy so he could have been raking, I didn't think about that. Thanks for the input everyone.

blacktails start dropping anytime late December, I saw a two point still packing just 3 days ago.  Elk take a bit longer, more like the end of march till May.  Seen bulls packing before in first week of April.

Here is  the massive set from a buck we called "Wanna-be", he wanted to be a 2 point! I found the first half on Jan 2nd and the wife found the other half 2 days later. He is one of the 8 deer that stay around all the time. This is real early for around here, they usually start to fall end of Feb. Maybe the weather has something to do with it. It has been in the teens at night and upper 20's to low 30's during the day. Then  throw in snow every so often. Back to the old days.

Out for a ride with the father in law yesterday. Picked this up on our way back home, not an hour after we passed the same spot on our way in. The tracks came right up and dropped it in our horse tracks, and turned back to his bed fifty yards off the logging road. By the time we searched for the other side we still had a 2 hour ride back and had to get going... we'll be back!(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/16/01/10/310305bb3f61c5303fcebe156620d77f.jpg) (http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/16/01/10/e3618ce62e4157e5c675dad93bd61648.jpg)(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/16/01/10/ed827455d1bee3455631c5d7f21a0292.jpg)(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/16/01/10/180c1cd775aed17bdbc000aa45ab6759.jpg)

Same as hunting for meat. Go to an area where you know deer or elk hang out the time of year they are dropping their antlers and start walking. A dog is great help and kids are awesome too since they are so close to the ground lol. I take mine almost everytime i go. My boys are 5 & 8 my daughter is 2.  Hoping tomorrow my daughter will find her first one :-)

Well no luck yesterday but kids had a great time! My buddys found a couple massive 4pts and a couple other ones. Heading back over in a few hours no kids this time so I'll be able to spend more time hiking and in the cold. Kids can only handle so much walking before they are done lol (ages 2&5) but i still had a great time and enjoy every moment of them being with me weather its all day out or just a few hours. :-). Nice sheds again everyone and hopefully I'll be able to add some more when i get home sunday night. Good luck to everyone thats in the woods this weekend

40 ticks between me my dog and niece, 1 broken boot lace, many many miles on the ol' boots, 500 miles on the truck and some vary nice scenery we got this little guy :-)

Got back over early sat morning and it had snowed about 3" and was still snowing. I should have checked it out when the kids and i was over Thursday but i didnt i knew there was snow up there just wasnt sure how much. So any way got over just about daylight and started the ol' truck up the hill but when we got to the road that takes us back to my spot i was a little shacked to see a 5' burm of snow from the snow plow.  :bash: we than decided to drive around and check some new areas. We spent half the day driving scouting and getting permission to shed hunt not seeing many bucks without head gear i decided to make a phone call and head across the river to oregon. I called a hound hunting buddy of mine he told me they had been seeing lots of bucks a week ago and this wee everything they had been seeing had dropped so i hit the gas and we were off across the big river and before we knew it we were at his place. Made introductions with his family and my niece. Since we only had 2 hours of daylight left we headed up to the hills so he could show us where we would be heading in the morning then back to his house for dinner and much needed rest. Sunday i opted to hunt an area close to his house that was holding several bucks and a hug migrating heard. (Hes not a shed hunter) so we hit the hill side and everything was looking promising until we started to run into people. Must be the local honey hole we ran into 20 people on foot and 3 on horse back. Oh well had great time managed to find one and had a guy pick one up in front of me. Seen lots of new country and got to catch up with an old friend.


Thanks for taking the time to read

The pic with the kids is from our trip over Thursday
My daughter had a great time she just didnt want to her pic take

I guess just depends on where you are. There are many still packing but lots have dropped also my buddy picked up 6 fresh low land Bt sheds 2 days ago and another guy i know got 32 bench buck sheds over the weekend.
My dad has shot several bucks in late muzzle loader season that have already dropped. My real good friend shot one this year during late buck riffle season that had already dropped. Thats the earliest one i have ever heard of

What would the regulation be on a buck during late buck already been shed. The way I see it wouldn't that be considered antler less at that point making it a no go. Especially since the regs state visible antler like growth as in bone. Just in conversation. Just looking at point of views. Think this is an interesting topic.
Saw one blacktail in this pass early December that already shed but was chasing a doe rutting like crazy.
Title: Re: 2016 Sheds...Post them here!
Post by: Lost in the mountains on January 22, 2016, 08:31:01 PM
Sorry i should had been more specific he did have one side when he shot it thinking it only was a one horned buck but when he got up to it it actually had shed the one side and then dropped the second side after he shot it. So he back tracked and found the side it had when he shot it.

I am having a heck of a time finding BT sheds this year but the old elk sheds keep coming!  My 2 yo daughter even found her first shed today and my niece found one off a bull that a friend had missed during muzzle loader season this year. His a lot bigger now 7x7 but still has the big crowns. His shed is about 3-4 years old but still has that nice crown on top and the one along the road i have driven past it atleast 20 x's this year but found it today  :chuckle: Hope everyone else had a great time in the woods like we did even tho it rained most of the day

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 ?


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk


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 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.

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.

Then the cherry on top was my other buddy finding his very first shed. A nice 7 point. Turns out it was the same bull from the set I had found a few days earlier, but his freshy. Such an unrivaled week of antler hunting. Time in the field is no joke, but the timing is pretty essential as well, there are a lot of horn hunters out there! Good luck to all :)

Haven't seen anything but mature bulls dropping so far. It is early, but not overly surprising.

I'm not certain there's no competition, just saying we don't usually run into people. Also, we're not out there every weekend, so between work and family obligations, the days when I can spend time in the woods with my kids/friends/family I like to take advantage of it.

Post by: sternwarning on March 15, 2016, 02:55:29 PM
Well, there's definitely a ton of competition. 5-10 trucks parked at all the same spots. Just a lot more land to cover than horn hunters are able, and we usually do a good job at going in further than most. Don't always do this well, most of the time it's just a great hike, but God's favor was on us this year....regardless of the competition :)

Check out the size of the 2 point pair I posted on here January 29th. Not as wide, but about 6 inches longer and just as wide at the base. Found a dead 4 point in same general area after the rut. I'd sure like to see the one that killed him!

Pup found her first deer set on her own a few weeks ago at 9 months old. A few days ago she found a set of big bull horns that scored 331 7/8 . The training is starting to pay off!
Title: Re: 2016 Sheds...Post them here!
Post by: teanawayslayer on March 15, 2016, 08:24:54 PM
Then the cherry on top was my other buddy finding his very first shed. A nice 7 point. Turns out it was the same bull from the set I had found a few days earlier, but his freshy. Such an unrivaled week of antler hunting. Time in the field is no joke, but the timing is pretty essential as well, there are a lot of horn hunters out there! Good luck to all :)
well it helps when that group of bulls all hang out together all winter long.  In your back yard.:chuckle:

Post by: Watimberghost on March 15, 2016, 08:57:42 PM
Yeah, teanaway slayer, the group of bulls you speak of have had a couple drops. But the majority of our finds have come from elsewhere. That's what I love about big bulls.... They can come from anywhere! Every corner of this state holds amazing animals. I believe my brother met you this year. Enjoy the offseason, and good luck to you this upcoming hunting season :tup:

Hey middlefork, nice first post... This thread went 6 pages of nothing but encouraging posts until we posted our elk sheds. Don't understand the negativity. If you think we find all our antlers on private property that's fine. I don't know you and you sure don't know me. The private property bulls you speak of are just that; on private property. Most of which I have no access to. 90%+ of every antler we find is on public property. So again, all of you with encouraging, positive comments, thank you. Really do appreciate it. For the rest of you.... Have a good day :tup:

So teanawayslayer, two bulls dropped by the house. Found four matching pairs and 3 singles beating feet in the mountains. 9 antlers were from last year, sitting and waiting for anyone to find em. Sound a little salty, kind of thought people would be happy for others who put on the miles and do it right, guess not. Jealously is a stinky cologne.

Congrats to all the antlers found!! More to come!!

First moose set and the biggest bull I have ever seen in the area. All I'll say is that they were in Southeastern Washington (http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160412/ab40e601f56397f991886ccd5193cbea.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160412/334ae8ed69ded12baf2773fb1ffb09c1.jpg)

Big blacktail? Photos don't do justice, his base is about 6 1/2 inches around.
I have the worst but strangest luck in finding sheds. Walked through multiple draws to find this guy laying on a logging road.

First fresh shed I've ever found. Had our 9 month old baby strapped to my chest... She was not into the brush crashing, river fording, etc.  I sat down and decided shed hunting with a baby is not ideal. I decided to started back to the truck and within 2 minutes found this beauty. Then continued to torture her for another hour looking for the other side! Good day

Thats not decent, that things a stud.  Despite what the interwebs would lead us to believe, a 5x5 whitey with good g4s and good brows is not lurking behind every bush.  The fact that theyre fresh and unchewed is icing on the cake.  I found a 6x6 heavy set that couldnt have been on the ground more than a month or two but it was chewed up already.  Damn rodents.

I've done that more than a few times, and then thought how the hell did I miss that!! I think coyotes or other critters move them, we've found them on the side of the road , and they weren't there when we drove by before.

Freeway find
Not really a shed as the dead deer was about 300ft away.

Did you get a close up look at it? Must have been a hard hit to knock/break off a green antler.... or was it hit in the head?

Saturday on my way home from the basin I Saw skid marks on left side of i-90, 75' later mashed deer on right shoulder. It looked like the other antler was laying next to head but could have been other pieces of deer, it was hit hard with other Debi scattered around carcass. Then about 200' after that I was 99% sure I saw this antler on the left shoulder. Yesterday I took i-90 home instead of old vantage so decided to stop and look. The deer had been removed and I thought i was mistaken in what i saw cause after an initial walk on the shoulder i couldn't find it. Jumped back on freeway and couple hundred feet later see it just where it was. I pulled off as tight to guard rail as possible and dukes of hazarded it out the window to pick it up...

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160714/bf1e7c2459cea7b898075476dce9b9f5.jpg) Past few trips have been good to me, and nope he just likes to chase squirrels, flies or any animal we jump haha we had a stare down with a big 3 point buck today; 15 yards and he stood still with me until the buck trotted off a couple minutes later then he wanted to see where he was going. Everyday in the woods is a good day.  Good job on all the finds everybody!

Little 3pt blacktail I found during muzzy season. Walked right by it the day before on the logging road. Guess the day before I was more preoccupied by the young coyote I nearly stepped on as it was pouring and had its head in the grass after a mouse. I coulda poked him with my gun barrel.

All my sheds of 2016 so far

Top-  found it while hunting a unit where i used to hunt(and where i found a different one).

Left- A very old two point muley shed i found while scouting some farmland i hunted back when i was around 10 years old.

Rightest Left- A three point Muley shed my dad picked up in the same farmland.

Right- A giant Blacktail shed i found several miles below where my dad elk hunts. We couldn’t get to the top since the roads were badly snowed in. But it was laying next to an old logging road. Found it in April.

Here's another I found a few weeks ago. Have 4 years of pics of this deer and had never found a shed of his until now. A little chewed up( has three eyeguards on this side, all chewed off) and another sticker that was gone but in pretty good shape. Lots of mass. Maybe I'll run into him this late season.

During the general deer season my son in law walked the upper portion of the new ranch property shown in the first photo.  Right at a 1000 ft' elevation rise from bottom of property to the top corner.

He did have an opportunity on a couple of bucks bedded together, one of which is clearly visible in the second picture, straight down and slightly left from the single pine tree right along the edge of the open field.  You can just make out his head sticking up.  The second, smaller buck is right next to him on the right (hard to see).  They managed to elude him however after an extended stalk.  He got within 50 yards and figured they were gone, but they were still in their beds.  Suprise and advantage to the deer.  They did wave at him as they left though :chuckle:. 

However he was rewarded with a pretty decent elk shed.  Not the biggest, but pretty good mass for its size and in excellent shape.  Last three pictures.

Yep he was a 7 point with a little spur that may or may not count as a point! I think this is an old bull that has started regressing. Would have been cool to see him in his prime.
