    I’m about 25 miles in now. I’m up to 14. The last 10 miles have produced nothing but a few Crossbow bolts, a pocket knife, an old boy scout canteen, and a lot of old glass bottles. I’ve been scouting by the river so no telling what you will find . My honey hole is on my list next. Hopefully in next week I’ll get there

    Dang! Rain all day yesterday and woke up this morning to everything being white again. Winds at 25 mph with gusts to 40 mph. :(

    It won't last though.

    I have zero history with this Buck. I actually was on a mission to find another buck that I had a couple encounter with sheds....these are bigger by quite a bit.

    Matched sets are cool to find. How far apart were they?

    30- maybe 40 yds! I couldn’t believe it. I think this buck may have been traveling back and forth through this grass on the daily. The trail I found them on leads to a couple fields. One is winter wheat and the other corn stubble with a lot of waste. Wanted to hit those fields but owner said no.

    That’s what I was thinking. I think the guy just got sick of people beating his door off the hinges every year and then trespassers. Now it’s just he hates everybody lol

    The shed season is wrapping up for us, but we decided to take a walk yesterday in Clark County, IA. Found this nice set---5.5 inch bases! Pretty much every day we've decided to shed hunt this year it’s been bright and sunny...definitely giving our eyes a workout! E5DDADD0-9914-41A1-AF78-A4919BC9BA76.jpeg
