    This place had grown up substantially. I think does just roll through it now, no bucks. But it was interesting to walk through.

    A couple years ago I was on a all day hike deep in the woods, proli 10 miles from any road or houses and found a rubber eyeball laying on top of the leaves like it was just placed there. It was kind of creepy and thought to myself it must’ve been dropped from an airplane or something. This was on private property and to my knowledge there would’ve never been anybody in that area for a long time

    I found a "happy birthday" balloon in the middle of a small cedar lined pond once in the middle of the woods. Freaked me out alot like that!
    Makes you wonder.
    I would almost guess a crow took off with the eyeball and dropped it, but how creepy!

That being said, I took a walk yesterday scouting a little on my new home place and found this one. Saw it shining in the sunlight from 20 yards away. I’m pretty sure it was shed last year since it matches the right side of the buck I killed this past November. I still find it hard to believe that I could find his year old shed antler after he was dead.

    I found this matched set side by side 10/18/18 @ 30 yards away from where I found yesterday’s shed. I also believe these are the sheds from 2 years ago of the same buck. The antler frames are very similar and there is a 1” burr at the base of both of the left sides at the same spot on the pedicles. Crazy!

    I typically find my sheds in a tractor tire while I am cutting the first hay crop of the year. They have cost me lots of money. I have never found any just laying around. When I turkey hunt, I am usually focused and on the move to sounds of gobblers without having the time to look around for sheds.

    Got one and a tire two years ago on my first outside pass around the field. Later that week my brother hit one and bent a blade we found that one in pieces and on the third or fourth pass after that I found the other side and bent one of my blades. I’ve never seen bases as thick as those sheds a big around as my wrist,

    Friend picked up a balloon once in NW Indiana on a state F&W area that had a plastic envelope attached to a string. It had a postcard in it with a address of a kid out in Iowa that said this balloon was set free during a project from our elementary school and could you please write down the location and date it was found and return. He sent the postcard back. That balloon had travel a long way to end up in a weed field in Indiana.

    Have you seen The Blair Witch Project? Three people were camping in the woods in the middle of nowhere. They would hear noises during the night, and when they would wake up in the morning, there would be like little bundles of sticks tied together, right outside their tent. It was the witch messing with them. Of course, she eventually caught them, and did horrible things to them. Anyway, that probably has nothing to do with that eyeball you found. Try not to think about it.

    Sorry if it came across that way. Wasn't intending to be rubbing it in. Just thought my post fit in with the thread and that it was interesting that I found the year old shed after I had killed him. These were found on a thick S facing hillside overlooking a wide open wooded creek bottom.

    I would guess we pick up 10-15 Mylar balloons a year on our place. Find more than that digging ginseng. Found one in the spring this past year with a note as well. It was actually released at a memorial service by a kid whose dad had passed away. It was released in Southern Indiana about 150 miles from us.
