    Default First fresh one!

    I had left one cam out in my back woods and checked it today. Noticed an 8 point that had a set of antlers one day and only one antler a couple days later...followed his tracks for a couple hours and was rewarded with this...

    Awesome find. Finding sheds isn’t easy.
    Leave my rifle, my fishing pole, my traps, and leave me be.

    Conditions were perfect today for a walk while following the big fellas tracks...walking pretty much on top of crusted snow with a 1” top coat of fresher wet snow. He has a pretty decent splake hoof too so it was easy to discern his track from the doe he’s hanging with. I even found a splotch of blood in his tracks which tipped me off to keep a sharp eye for the drop...there was another splotch of blood a few yards further and the antler was setting on top of a frozen beaver trail just behind a small dam. I got very lucky!

    Thanks! I’m enjoying looking at it on my coffee table! Maybe this season I’ll have the rest of him in my freezer and on my wall!
