This past week these popped up into the glasses! We estimated this buck to have a 27-30 inch outside spread. His gross score is around 180, with all of the chewed up stuff added in. He is a bit weak on mass, pretty chalky & the rodents had chewed on them quite a bit, but still a nice find.
Here is exactly how this typical set of mule deer sheds were laying.
We have glassed & hunted this EXACT same spot NUMEROUS times over the past few years. So, it was pretty crazy to believe these were laying less than 20 yards from the road.
