Finally found a pretty decent one today. I've shed hunted pretty hard the past couple of years and always seem to come up empty or find one thats all chewed up. Walked for about 4 hours today and spotted this guy on the way back to my truck. I no it's not a monster by any means, but it would be a solid shooter 8 pointer If he walked by me. Couldn't find the other side, going back out tomorrow to try and find it. Don't bucks more times than not loose both sides pretty close together? Didn't get an ATL picture because I was so idea I ran to it and swooped it up.

ALRIGHT MAN!!!:eek::

I've found matched sets laying on top of each other...Other times they've been a week and a 1/4 mile apart.

My farthest set was 1 mile apart.And they obviously were matches.

Seems for the most part though, if you find them, they are a couple hundred yards apart.
Heck, he could still be packin it to.

I found two sets today and the matches were within a foot or three apart(from their matches).


Best advice would be don't give up.Start workin circles about every 40 yards.(Closer if thicker, farther if more open)Don't just walk trails and call it good.
When you think you've covered it all do it again from a different angle.Might find some others as well.

CONGRATS AND GOODLUCK!!!:cheers:

Congrats! I will tell you that I have pics from last year of a buck that shed 1 side the 1st week of January last year and he packed around the other side for nearly 6 weeks. So don't get frustrated. Just keep looking in the general area but don't spend too much time and push him out. But like others I have found sheds laying inches apart, which is the way i think all of them should be. :cheers:

I'm gonna keep after it hard, but my property is so hilly that it's almost impossible to figure out where this buck came from. If the other side isn't in the field, I probably won't find it:whinging:
