Usually by this time of year I have found a few small little sheds in our bales. So far nothing.

Saw a nice sized muley the other day with only one horn. Looked like he had dropped one, and hadnít broken it off.

Got this one yesterday while out grouse hunting but it's one of last year's (the squirrels had chewed it up a bit). And bagged our limit of ruffies, too!

Exactly! I've been looking for a fresh one so I could start a thread, only found one old one so far.

Either way, nice to see this thread, love these ones.

First time out as well. Checked a feeding area. Stayed well away from the bush that they bed in.

In Calgary and area, the snow is pretty patchy. Most of it that remains is on North- and East-facing slopes or in dense woods or creek bottoms.

Iíll be ripping around on the quad this weekend looking for them! Hopefully I can have some luck and post back.

Took my Son and dog out to try and find a fresh brown or two this afternoon. Dog found this one. Think itís his 5th or 6th wild one now. I love the fact he knows what Iím bidding him to do but it really buggers a guy for the ATL pics.

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...e7ee692fe4.jpg

He found this and brought it back to the house all of his own accord a couple weeks ago too.

Heres a special one. I have this buck on cam for 4 yrs, he peaked in 2016. This shed was found in late November of the last hunting season. I have a lot of days and miles into that buck. I did find other side last spring. He regressed into an old typical that would be about 150 class after last years brutal winter. Spring photos showed he was very thin. Energy went into rebuilding the body and the antlers reflect that. Have never seen him with my own eyes. Only have the set from 2017 that he would have dropped in 2018. Only seen the drop tin poking outbof the snow, i grabbed it and ruined the as it lay shot. No I am not putting it in last yrs thread.

The set reunited.

That is nuts that it is still so dark brown! and a true trophy stellar set to boot.

I have picked up a nice matching set only 3 months apart and the later one is noticeably whiter as it lost some of its deep dark color.

Too bad he has regressed and is on the downward slope of his time. Good news is I am sure he has spread his genetics all over that area for you.

bonedogg 01-25-2019 01:34 PM

great find!!

pic nearly gave me a heart attack, that is one special find.....congrats on having them both
