I got to see a dandy one side today, a kid I know chased me down to show me a chewed year old 6 point side.

Base was about 6" C (est) and between G2 and G3 was really thick and kind of webbed. He had measured it and for you numbers guys it scored 74" with the ends chewed off almost all points.

I know it was the heaviest the farthest out on main beam of any rack I've seen here. Wish I'd gotten a pic.

Stay sharp, Kenny.

We have a herd from california that winters above my house. Last week the bucks still sported headgear, but they hang in the same stands of mountain mahoganies so I am hopeful. Our DOW is talking permits to shed hunt. All about money

I can understand permits to sell antlers but permits to be allowed to search for them? really?

Next you will need permits to go berry picking! damn, I may have just gave those darn grubby, money mismanaging grass holes another revenue source. [Eek!] [scared]

I will leave an antler lay on the ground before paying to pick it up.

If we are supposed to start paying to pick them up I guess I'm just gonna be an outlaw. The government takes enough money from us as it is.

I was thinking the same thing.......I will not pay for something I found in the woods.......just won't tell anyone. What's next, pay to pick mushrooms for your own use.

Spent about 3hrs walking today. As usual, the big sheds I’m looking for continue to elude me. But I didn’t come home empty handed. Found another monster to add to the collection.

Hey, it's tough to find them small ones.......well done. It will be easy to see the big ones down the road.

Colorado isn't selling permits to shed hunt. They were thinking about it earlier but decided not to charge to hunt sheds. However, they did set a date to allow people in to start searching to keep the stress off wintering elk and deer.

Finally some good luck finding the bigger sheds. A bud and I were out for about four hours today. We each found one, but he graciously gave me his find since we were searching my hunting grounds.
