lewy, are you by chance using a dog?  I find sheds here and there but have never found a match set of blacktail sheds, mule deer yes but not blackies.  The dang thick cover seems to just absorb them.

No dog, just a good year for matching up sets I guess. Some years its the opposite

Thanks- found the top 2 within 200 yards on 2 different days. Maybe can't really tell but the 4 point shed in 2nd picture is a lot bigger. Haven't found the match to that one yet.

Iv always had a tough time with finding a match to a blacktail shed.  Typically when i find one i just keep on going, in the past i have spent hours looking around the immediate area and have never found the other side so now i just keep on moving.  Some ppl find them right next to each other and i'm happy for them but i just don't have that luck.

Thank you! But no i didnt, he was tearing up everything around that area. I was lucky enough to just stumble upon them on the way back to the truck. I always look under and around rubs but never have found any sheds next to one
