Most of the snow is gone now, can get started. Won't get that many here though.

Nice brown elk antlers are bringing $18.00 per pound. An average elk antler side can weigh 3-6 pounds. Nice chunk of change for the seller.

Trapstickman hunted sheds for a long time before he ever got one:

You guys have some dandies. Trapstickman needs to be schooled on the different varieties available.

I do a lot of looking in the spring but usually am unsuccessful. I can rationalize by saying that the small ones take the most skill to locate:

This is a really nice set of sheds. I seen them from the road as I was driving by. Every time I see where deer cross the road and jump fences I slow down or stop and look.

My 11 year old found a medium size whitetail shed today while we were out turkey hunting. It was not chewed very much at all surprisingly.
