Signs of Spring
The trees are starting to form their new buds and there are hints of new grass shooting up through the remnants of last year. It’s also the time of year the antlers start to hit the ground.
Now I have never had much luck shed hunting. I’ve got a pile of bone around the house but seem to only find those when I’m out hunting. I’m convinced that some people just have a knack for this activity, an eye for just the right thing. I’m also convinced I don’t… My neighbor Jim on the other hand does. His pile of antlers around his place can prove it and he has an uncanny knack of finding goodies out in the woods.

After that we found a couple more sheds within 150 yards, a great start!
We worked our way up to the top of the mesa and stopped to rest and take in a beautiful view off the top. I noticed an old Cowboy cabin below us and made note of it to check out later.
After cutting off the mesa and working down a nasty north facing Canyon I heard a yell from Jim farther up. When I got to him He had found an old 6 point bull that had died. The entire bull’s body was in pieces all that was left was the back bone and the head.
