He was reminding you of what antlers look like.

ouch......that was low monie.......we took Ella out yesterday.....rode around for ever and didnt find any.....she started to cry because we hadnt found any so we explained to her that it just happens that way.....sometimes you just dont find any......wouldnt ya know it on our way home we were going by the last food plot and she spotted an antler in the food plot......turned out it was a matched set off of about a 160.....the expression on a three year olds face when they find a shed is the coolest thing ever.......

Low? Nah. Just a friendly poke.

Scotts luck with sheds is about like my luck with drawing a turkey tag.

You should shed hunt like I do, go out in the woods to do something, with shed hunting the furthest thing from your mind, and you'll find them. Yesterday, I went out to burn the weeds off the west side of my pond. While bending down to start the fire, low and behold there was the right side of a rack laying right there at my feet. Last time, I was turkey hunting. While sitting down to start calling, off to my right at 3' was a 4 point rack.

If I go out with the intention of shed hunting, all I come back with is a case of attitude!

Good luck
