    Was able to pick up 1 small shed this weekend.. bringing my total to 10 on the year. Is now the 7th shed I've pulled from my new grounds for 2010.. so thats kinda cool.

    It's been slow going lately.....:mad:

    Congrats on your finds Grizz.

    Did we ever pick a team name.

    I still like the "Trom-bonners".

    set

    Went out a couple days ago while driving home, so I didn't have the camera with me for the ATL pics. Here is a pic of what I found once I got it home. Another matched set, small 9pt probably a 2yr old buck. They were about 3 feet apart in the snow. I believe that puts me up to 11 for the year.

    Went out today on some property I have never been on with a friend of mine. Picked up 2 small antlers. One I think is from last year, it seems to be a little weathered for this seasons shed. Well add 2 more small ones for me I cant seem to find any big antlers yet this year but Im not giving up. I believe that puts me at 13 for the contest.

    I took my kayak and paddled to a pretty remote spot and shed hunted for a couple of hours today.. NONE. I almost drown myself as I came back across the lake because I suck so bad. :(

    Good work guys, I'm still a zero but plan on turkey hunting next weekend which is usually when I've found bones in the past.

    todays

    Went out today for about 5-6 hours. Found 7 and one dead head. I did find another matched set, its in the middle of the pic, its small but its always neat to find both sides. Everything I found was chewed up pretty bad. I think that may mean its time to switch from shed hunting to turkeys... I think that puts me to 20 sheds for the year and 1 dead head.
