Public Land Shed Antlers

Found these on the Allegheny National Forest in the Brookston area on Feb 4th. There are at least 2 130 class deer around for next year. The antler on the right is off a 4 year old 10 pt. He should be a real hoss this year with the easy winter. Never got any pics of the deer with the long tines.

The beams on the 2 large left side antlers are just over 21" long.

I saw a nice 6 point yesterday close to my house still carrying bone. He was laying by a water hole, watching cars go buy.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Nice find! I was driving through that area late last Friday night, and I saw a big white snowshoe hare.

I went antler hunting yesterday, but all I found was the remains of a doe. Her skull was in good shape, so I brought it home.

Re: Public Land Shed Antlers

A friend near hit a coyote in Ohio on a ATV, and it had a large shed in its mouth. I look in the thickest places I can find I seen a very large buck probably 140" coyote hunting last night he walked right past seemed he knew things were quiet now.

Re: Public Land Shed Antlers

me and the boys were tramping our mountain spots this weekend and kicked out a herd with 15 in it and one was a nice racked buck. i haven't seen a herd that size in 20 years there. i'd sworn all the deer were gone last season but its good to see theres some left. now to see that big one next season. i love scouting this time of year.
