Non-Typical Find

This big, bad non-typical has me in a fit trying to score the match.

Winning - Big day for mulies

You know your winning when your back hurts.

Club-Fork's Last Stand

The deer that shed this antler had a broken leg, hanging close to a big food source, and was injured further by predators. I was forced to put him out of his misery. Setting his soul free was very spiritual, reminding me of the kinship with the natural that natives spoke of. 

Always check out the rubs!

This beauty was lying next to a massive rub. While finding a horn right next to a rub is the exception, not the rule, it is always worth checking.

First Fresh 2012 Elk Shed

There is nothing quite like a day full of finding sheds - even if your buddy is the one finding them all. It seems like sometimes you pick the right line to walk and sometimes you don't. What's even better than picking up a bunch of deer sheds is also stumbling on a couple elk sheds out of the blue! We found a year old scorable elk horn right off the bat. Then after about 8 Muley horns and a frustrated individual, I found a fresh elk shed, not as big as the first, but all in all a real nice 5 pointer.

Should I be hacking horns off winter kills I find?

Another successful weekend of shed hunting has come and gone. Here in Eastern Idaho we are in the prime of the season with the snow melting off and the treasures it has kept hidden for the past couple of months are becoming exposed. Don't get me wrong, the elk are just begging to drop their headgear and there is still a lot of snow past the tree lines, but it isn't too early to explore and hook up with an antler.

White Tail Fix Satisfied

This is a bad photo, but you can still make out the second shed sitting there. Yep - found a set! Been a while!

Muley Deadhead

This poor fella must have been dead for a while - he was sitting in a draw that is usually full of snow on harsher years. Maybe he got away from a hunter in the fall, who knows.
