Stone Colds 2013 Shed Thread

Recommended Posts

Went for my first walk on the first for about 1 1/2 hours and did not find anything. I will be back out this weekend and will be checking my trail cams too. We will see. I want to also wish you all a happy hunting and lets see them pictures on your team threads for the contest and on here as your own thread. Hope to see many from all of you. Good luck from the DAWG! Here is a picture I took the other day of a Hawk staying out of the wind. It is not focused all the way in and I wish it was but he was looking to get out of there so had to take it fast.

On my second walk of the year I hit pay dirt! I found a nice 9 point dead buck, a buck with his head cut off, and my first shed from a very familiar buck! Here they are:

I just happened to look up to find this very old tree stand that is getting swallowed from the tree growth!

A squirrel that ran from me decided to get back in his hole and peak out at me.

The buck with his head cut off! Trespassers that would be called since it was at the back of the property.

Went for a short walk yesterday after work and I struck pay dirt and matched up my other shed. Here is the set with the same deers set from 2011! Also a picture of the buck himself again. Now the bad side to this story is the pictures that I took for ATL are not saved on my memory card for some reason. I did take one with my iphone.

Awesome match up on the big dude Stones! I was hoping you'd complete the set, and a GREAT set it is!

Good job on adding 2 more to the pile too! You guys grow some nice bucks!

Well, work has been a little stressful the past week so I went out for another walk to ease the stress. We have had a bad assault on a friend of mine and he is an officer at the prison. I pray for his recovery and get him back to work soon. Here is a good stress reliever just like the two sheds yesterday.

It was funny today! I went for a walk and found two more sheds, walked in on two dogs eating a dead doe, and the funny part, the guy who trespasses on the property that was told to stay off was parked by my truck and was filming me with his phone then stated "Have a nice day!" What he is going to prove I dont know but it was funny! He is the same one that tried to trick us into walking on his property to get a shed that was in front of his trail cam if you all remember from last year. I guess he is still salty that we got him served with a letter to stay off the property or he will be charged with trespassing. LOL

Here is pictures from today!

Yesterday I worked 16 hours and had another double shirt 8 hours later. We had a nice rain again so I went for a 2 hour walk before I went to bed. I ended up getting these pictures and one more Dink! It is a week of Dinks for me but a shed is a blessing to me no matter what size. I like them all! I have now got a some what closer look at the big fellas antlers. I now really like the left side more due to the little non typical point off the bottom of the beam. I also hope to get better pictures before he sheds too I hope. I am heading out in the morning in hopes to get some great pics of him shedding them off in front of my eyes. Oh crap now I am dreaming! LOL Hope to get them soon. I do have other competition that knows he is in that area. :(

I went out in the rain today and ended up with some great sights of a few big boys with full racks. I also found a broken off tine and one shed. It was raining really good so I did not take out the camera for much!

Well, I went for a short walk tonight and found two. The first one was on the edge of the creek and it was blocked by some grass. I about stepped on it before I saw it. LOL The second one I spotted from about 20 yards away along the edge of a log. You can see where the buck was rubbing his antlers trying to knock it off. That was really cool to see that.

Went out today and found another small one. It was laying next to some leg bones. He must of not liked the smell of them and pulled his head up to fast. I was reading a thread about hanging skulls and I have never seen many so I hung up 5 of them today. LOL My daughters dog was checking out the antler and he picked it up. He took off in the garage with it and would not give it back. When I went to get it back he grumbled a little. Here are the pictures from today.
