Spotted a TIP from the road, in the upper left corner.
Good eye!

ATL= As They Lay...  As in a picture of the antler prior to you picking it up.

First time finding sheds with my daughter - we spent the whole day driving and hiking around wherever she wanted to go and talking about everything a 5 year old can think of to talk about. I spotted them and guided us in the general direction until she "found" them. Made a memory that will last my whole life I think and a memento to last for her as well.

I do the same with my 5 yr old.  It seems like he's always asking me if he can hold one of the sheds he has found.  I like the way you wrote on it, I take a grinder and flatten a spot on the white bottom of the antler and write the date with a sharpie.

I just used a dremel tool and went in 1/8" or so so that it could never fade. I figured it will be cool to look back at years down the road.

Picked these up during work Friday. The pup is coming into his own as a shed dog already, just over 9 months old!

Talked to a guy at the gate on Friday, he's up there almost daily. He found 1 small 5 pt on Kapowsin side, and he ran into Clyde on Eatonville side, and Clyde found a 6 OT right on the side of the road where they were parked.

I went out this weekend and all I found was this guy.  :)
I went back up on the hill, and what a difference a few days can make, they started logging.
