Figured I'd get this up. Here's a place to share your shed pics you find or trip over this year ;).

Havent found a thing yet but a few days ago i was hiking around looking for somewhere good to call cats (7.5 miles that day only called once.) And i started finding a bunch of moose tracks. Then a wax leaf ceanothus bush... then lots of ceanothus. A hillside ive been above and below, but never on, was loaded with ceanothus, moose tracks, turds, rubs... but unfortunately the snow had recently piled up ball deep. Could have easily been paddles under all that snow. Im going back when it melts off this spring. Gotta be something there. Probably old paddles too as this place has been closed to motorized travel for a few years now and i was a few miles in and up.

I did actually get a new shed this year, but i didnt find it. A friend texted me a while back that he found it, so i gave him a fresh brown moose paddle for this chewed up ol deer shed that had been getting destroyed by mother nature for almost 4 years. Its the 2016 right side of my buck i got in 2017 with my raffle tag. Not a doubt in my mind. Wish i could get the left. Chewed up and bleached out, totally irrelevant, this shed was worth its weight in gold to me.

Found this dead deer while stalking an elk herd yesterday. Found a big 5x5 and 6x6 bulls for next year so stoked.

In the course of my lion huntimg today i pulled a camera. Looks like theres a nice set of sheds somewhere in that creek bottom. Walking around with just one antler a week ago. Guess i should go back up there and poke around a bit.

Looks like a nice buck I got a couple big whitetails to go shed hunting for too, they gave me the slip this year seen a flash but no shot. Got a 320 class bull elk to go poking around for sheds too found his winter bedding. -20C here and most still got their headgear.
