    Today yielded a balloon and a turtle shell. Lots of scrapes and a handful of rubs.

    Got out for 2-3 hours this afternoon and covered a lot of ground but no sheds. Did pull 3 cameras that had been out since the opening gun weekend and had several January pics of some good bucks that made it through the hunting seasons. Some had started shedding late January/early February.

    Speaking of creepy, I was hiking way out this fall and tried cutting up to a ridge and wound up in the thickest briar patch I've ever been in. I was in the worst part of it miles from any houses and looked down and saw a pair of women's sunglasses o_O First reaction I just picked them up then thought oh God I hope there's not a body out here and now my fingerprints are on these glasses lol Weird.

    The plot is thickening on this fossil deal, would have loved to find a massive shed but this might be fun too. Trying to connect with a palentologist at uk.

    I have found the most sheds spreading fertilizer, disking or planting row crops in the spring. In the last 10 years I have probably picked up at least a 100 sheds. Unfortunately I have found 5 with tractor tires. That is a very expensive way to find sheds. It wouldn't be as bad if it was half of a 180 to 200 inch deer. But it seems it's always a dinky little half of a 6 pointer or basket rack 8. Last year I did manage to find a matching set that if estimated with a 16 inch spread would have scored 174. Thats the biggest set found to date. Lots of 110 to 140 size sets and the rest little 1.5 year old 4, 6, 8 pts.

    It seems like most of them I pick up are in low places of the fields. Crop areas along ditches, or along the edge of the fields within 20 yards or so of the woods.

    Haha. So! The fossil is from a straight shelled squid (lets bypass technical terms) and because of where it was found its from about 485-443 million years ago.
    Holy smokes!
    Apparently all of kentucky was underwater and these squid things were all over the place floating around wayyyyy before the dinosaurs.
    Theres a history lesson for today. Things i never knew until i went on an empty handed shed hunt, lol.
