I found a skull of a 6 pointer that looked like it's been there a year. The antlers, although weathered, were fine. I brought it home and left it by my shed. I came back out and some rodent had chewed off all the points in an afternoon. I had to laugh, go figure.

I've never found one!
Down side is with our weather and lack of freeze and rodents, we pretty much have stuff eaten pretty quick. Add that with the freakin wacked (late) breeding, by the time they drop, 90% of the state is hot and getting the rains.
I know there are guys that do find them.......I haven't

Well I didn't find any sheds this past Saturday, but I did find an awesome spot to set-up in a ground blind next fall.  The food source on the farm doesn't change, the deer are still going out into the snow covered alfalfa fields to dig up some grub.  The main travel route shouldn't change much throughout the year either then.  Now I can't wait to start preping for next year's hunts!
