I would have definitely taken

I would have definitely taken that one! Since I have never shot a mule deer, I'm not sure how big of a one I'll be looking for, but a 4x4 would certainly be big enough.

Do you think those two sides belong together? I haven't seen enough mule deer antlers up close to really be able to guess.

That looks like a great hobby, though. A way to get out and do some scouting, get more familiar with the land, and possibly bring back some souvenirs as well.

jaybe---Don't you dare shoot

jaybe---Don't you dare shoot a little milksucker like that one, LOL!  Seriously that is a tiny mulie and you should see some a lot better than that out there!  The sheds don't look like a match to me.

Good to see some outdoor

Good to see some outdoor activity going on now that the weather is a little nicer. I was hoping to get out tomorrow and start looking but the only family pet passed away from old age last night so it looks like I'm going to do some digging instead. Should be able to make it next week though.

two to three year old

The head looks to be about a two or three year old youngster.  Not a bad muley but not great either.  I would say the other two very well might be a match.  Depending on what area they were found, there are a lot of smallish two by threes out here.  Don't know where they were found, but we have an area here in Washington that produces way more than it's share of 3X4's. 

What do you do with the sheds?  I have a good friend that picks up many every year and makes lamps and other fun things with them.

Thanks !!!

Thanks for the comments guys ! Thumbs up The sheds are a matched set and the deadhead is about a 4 1/2 year old buck. Not all bucks are going to become giants. Shoot some never make it past that 150" to 160" mark (they just do not have the genetics).

I would like to get my lazy butt out there and start finding some bone, but I am still looking at getting some new boots and then breaking them in.

Good luck to all getting out and enjoying the great outdoors.
