    Holy Cow! What a find! It's definently to bad the deer couldn't make for another season, but that's nature. I'll bet the kid was all smiles finding that skull w/ rack. Shed hunting is fun and GOD only knows what a person can find when looking for them. Pretty Cool. Thanks for the pics.

    Success, I started shed hunting last year elk and deer, i found carcuses but no antlers, dropped or attached. I just love going out enjoying the forest, it is a bonus to run across wildlife or a shed. Congrats on your find.

    First time I ever saw one shed it's head???:eek:oooh: You must have some MEAN deer there!!!

    I hope it was a natural death deal or a car hit. I hate to think that it was shot and got away only to pass away from the wound.:sad2:

    Great find! Here's a couple pics of skulls I've found while rabbit and squirrel hunting. They ain't as big as that one though!

    That is one big brute, for sure. And Matt, those are also good finds. I've never personally found anything like that, but my husband has found a really nice antlered skull, plus some loose antlers. He also found a cool beaver skull. Oh, I did find a coyote skull, but it was a coyote that my husband had shot the year before!(Does that count for anything? Ha!) But usually, when it's time to look for sheds here, he's already thinking about fishing!!

    Cool find. Looks like the tree rats got a hold of the tip of one of the tines. I really like those european mounts. Thanks for sharing!
