    I've been lacking terribly with posting here. I usually try to keep up a shed thread but that obviously didn't happen this year. Oh well. I had by far my best season ever and am currently sitting at 66 sheds and still have a couple more spots I'd like to hit. Doubtful I find any more, but it's worth a shot. Also, my 3 oldest kids all found their very first solo sheds this year which is amazing! It's been a ton of fun watching them enjoy shed hunting more and more every year.
    As always, I make videos of all my finds and have them on youtube. Here's a link to my channel if you want to watch. https://www.youtube.com/user/beetyal2/videos?view_as=subscriber I'm not in it for views, I just like being able to go back and relive those finds. And here are a few highlights from my year!
    My very first shed on the year was the previous year from my late muzzy buck. I doubled up on coyotes that morning and 15 minutes later snagged #1 on the year!

    I can't tell you how much I love pulling sheds out of the snow!

    Prior to this year I had found 1 typical 6 point main frame in my life. I found 3 this year! Technically one isn't due to a broken brow, but I'll still count it.

    My first ever hanger!

    One of my favorites from the season. Just a massive base on this sucker!

    This one was a first for me... Middle of march, calm sunny day, mid 40's for the temp and I see a shed on the other side of a 30-40 foot wide creek.... I have access to both sides, but it was a long muddy ways in from the other side so.... I stripped down, swam across and got it! Making memories folks!

    And I'm a moron for not getting an ATL of these, but these are by far my biggest set ever and what would have been my biggest single if it wasn't chewed up. I was too excited though and picked them up without taking pics lol. I can't believe I missed them last year.... I'm just assuming he dropped them after I walked that spot haha!

    And here's the season end pic with 60 of the sheds. I've snagged the other 6 since then.

    That's a pile of bone Lyon. Congrats and good times it sounds like. Maybe the big set belongs to a buck that's a late dropper. Might wanna rewalk that farm this spring

    I'd like to say that's the case but I probably just walked by it lol. There's another piece of ground right by that spot holds a lot of deer and nobody hunts...that I know of. I really want to get in there but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get permission or not.

    That's a heck of a haul and some beauties!

    That one does have a mega base, no wonder this has been one of your favorite shed seasons.
