    Good good job, thats neat never seen an elk shed before. You are very lucky to live in an area that you can do that. When do elk as a general rule loose them?

    Got to love finding those sheds. It takes me about 4 hours per shed in my neck of the woods.
    Great job!

    Hey NONYA, nice work! Ive been out movin cows and seen some nice sheds a time or two, but none like that. I wouldve loved to be riding a broke horse at the time, but that never seemed to be the case. I did however collect a few piles. In two years, my buddy and I had 3 piles about 3ft around and 2ft high that we put in front of the line shack we lived in in the summer (cow camp). Then after hunting season one year, they were gone, along with all of our DentyMore stew, and cans of chilli from the cupboards. How they ever dissappeared I dont know, cause it was about 13 miles from the nearest road. Mustve been some ''eager thieves''. Oh well easy come easy go. At least none of em were ''trophies'' like yours. It was alot of fun finding them.
