Reminds me of a hunt where a nice buck was saved by shedding his antler. I was hunting from a blind overlooking where the deer come into a field. Well a doe came busting out and followed by a really nice wide heavy 8 point. She was headed right at me so I proceded to pick up my 30/06 thinking this was going to be a easy one. I had not even taken the safety off at a buck yet but he was a shooter. When I next looked up he was shaking his head and stopped about 30 yards in front of me kicking at one atler. Well needless to say I did not shoot and off he went. While sitting there rehashing things in my minds eye I could remember seeing the spread. So I jumped out to see where he went but they were already gone. I walked down to the fence line and there about 15 yards from the fence was half a rack. This was late Dec. I made a plack for the anltler and have fond memories of the hunt when I look at it. Made for a great story too.

A buddy and i pulled cards out of 2 cameras last weekend (29th) they had not been checked since the 7th of January i would say about 10 to 20% of them had shed.

i`m glad we left them out. the one deer we were hoping to catch pics of actually showed up during the day and gave us a great 15 sec video!

i would love to get some comments on it if i knew how to post it on the site. it keeps telling me AVI is`nt allowed. no you tube account so that`s out.

Talked to the neighbours that have cameras up..due to the light winter they have not seen any bucks dropping..they grouped back up 5 bucks traveling together coming off the property I hunt.. I'm looking forward to finding some good sheds..

Have no idea what the pink color is from.
Here are some pics of my 2011 take of shed antlers. Hope I do at least this good if not better this season.

Some pics of a large pair I found in 2011. Love the snow. It's like a gift, you know what it is, but not exactly what it is like. The larger side is 78 7/8.
