Found this one today.


Why do I always have problems with pictures rotating only on this site?  The damn thing is the right way everywhere else.

My first sheds.  They were within 4 feet of each other.  After a day of bear hunting but not finding any bear sign, these were a nice surprise.

Finally found some bone this year!  Part of the eye guard was the only thing sticking out, every part of the antler was buried beyond that. West side swamp antler.

Still packing both sides? I've seen a few spikes with 1 or both still on, but no big Bulls. I hope maybe some of the big Bulls I saw still haven't dropped yet. I saw 10 6 pt or better Bulls one day down low when there was a foot of snow up there, so I been hitting those areas hard looking for the sheds, but still haven't found anything fresh where I saw all those Bulls.

I found this yesterday in kittitas county. It measures 94" with at least 4" missing from rodent chews and weighs 2 1/2 pounds. If only it was brown! Seems like a buck of this caliber would have a story... anybody?
