2015 sheds....post them here!!
« on: February 09, 2015, 08:24:08 PM »
Alright folks.  It's just about that time of year when the antlers start dropping.  Here's the annual thread to share your finds.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Nachesl, that's a pretty pair!   :tup:

A slow year this year, tied with last year, not even close to the 11 from the year before.

That's one heck of a good start antlerking! With time spent like that I'm sure you'll come across some more big boys.

Nice Blackie ridge roamer :tup:

Pretty damn impressive! Last spring bear I saw a guys truck with personal license plates that had something to do with antler hunting or antler king.  Was this your truck?  The guy seemed to be hard core, had a small tent up in the wilderness.  Nice haul either way!

Picked this up today. Was checking my trail cam, and on the way out, I looked down and there it lay. It's not from this year, has some moss on it.
