Not much snow by the look of it-hows your temps?


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

It rained on Christmas so most of our snow melted. Its nice and hard now after cooling off. Like walking on concrete. It's been around -15 f but has warmed up to a few above during the day.

Nice find. Worth big bucks down here in the lower 48. What did they weigh?

Moscow Hide & Fur is paying $16.00 to $18.00 a pound for #1 brown moose antler. I assume those are fresh sheds that havenít been mouse chewed.

Iím thinking those antlers will lose a couple of pounds when they get dried out.

The catch is - those prices are paid at their warehouse in Moscow, Idaho. Moose antlers are a pain in the real end to ship and expensive.

Good Luck on finding more tomorrow.

Yea thats the deal with salmon too. 60 cents a lb here and $16 a lb in Anchorage. I am out in the bush so that adds cost to get them to Anchorage.

Thanks again.

Great set Yukon, those are beauties. Weíve scooped 27 whitetail sheds so far, but Iíd take that set over all of them.

Looks like you found them close together. Have found 3 sets moose sheds over the years and in each case the antlers were within 100 yds. Seems they loose both at about the same time so if you find one start looking as the other is probably not far.

Don't want to hijack the thread but these are two moose sheds I found side by side. I think they may be the same bull moose but from two different years. He must have dropped them where he likes to bed.

Looks like lower 48 prices are down?I swear Peskas was paying about $20 a lb for brown moose antlers last time I looked? I have a few in a stack, but the shed business died two years ago when I found 11 dead ( deep snow killed) moose within a half mile of the house. frown


Now they are quoting $11to $13 for brown moose.
