Lets see those sheds!

The popular off-season pastime is quickly becoming a sport itself. Help cure antler illness by sharing your shed hunting tactics.

I'm stuck in Afghanistan, but my Dad's emailed me the pics of his best finds this spring.
The smallest of the bunch is the first. They haven't been measured, but it's sitting on an 8.5x11 pad of paper. The squares on the linoleum are also approx. 8x8"
Interstingly he hasn't found any little antlers this year.
 
Enjoy!

This doesn't really count as a shed, but it's cool none the less

Very funny Fasteddie. Wish I would have thought of that first.

I found a nice 4 point shed last weekend.  My first time out at the farm this year.  Will post a pic soon.

One of my better finds. A typical shed measuring 91 7/8. Found the other side almost a mile away, and more than a week later. It had some little sharp teeth marks on the area between the "G-1" and "G-2". Carried by a coyote, I wondered how far. They sometimes pick up an antler and carry it around like a toy.

More shed pics. A pair of Boone&Crockett sheds as I found them in 1998. That was a very good day.

Don't know why you guys have so much trouble finding shed antlers. I think your not going to the right places. Or just not looking good enough. This is how I find them. My "Field Of Dreams".
