Some guys spend thousands of dollars for a shed hunting dog. Others set out antler traps, while others spends hours upon hours searching. This method is much less tiring, although very hard on them! :-(

This is the second time I’ve done this.

how long did it take to train your truck to find shed antlers??

So this finally settles the debate. Dodge IS better than Chevy and Ford...at least at finding shed antlers.

Grizzly....this is his first season.

Not so fast, Overland. The first one I found this way, was with a Ford, plus it was a lot bigger shed as well.

Found one with my Kubota a couple years ago, lucky for me it was in the lug and didn’t puncture the tire. Then I found another hung up in my disc about a week later. No, they didn’t match :-)

With this somewhat unusual turned up main beam tip, I’m hoping a get a crack at this guy in 4-5 years. Maybe exact a little bit of payback.

I have put several into tractor tires working wheat stubble after harvest. Generally on the small fields bordering the creeks. It sucks

So many deer on Troy’s place can’t even drive down the driveway without running over a couple antlers!

Stepped on a 4pt WT. shed in MT. in a hayfield at night once. Luckily it didn't puncture my shoe sole and me require a tetanus shot. I was looking for sheds at night too. Heckuva way to find one.

You need to thin out those dink bucks. Give me a call! ;-)

How do we know it's a Dodge or Toyota. Lol

From: t-roy

Definitely a Dodge, goelk. You can see the cancerous rust bubbles forming on the edges of the wheel wells......unfortunately notorious on Dodges.

From: Grey Ghost

The Ram head cast into the center of the wheel is also a clue that it's a Dodge. ;-)

I got lucky, Paul. Got it patched today for $20. Hopefully, it holds ok. Not very miles on those tires!

Pshhh... little Iowa sheds. (Roll eyes)

That’s not what I meant when I said to “Dodge” it. You supposed to miss it not “Ram” it!

t-roy, when I said you should teach Hemi to find sheds I was talking about your dog, not your truck! :-)

You know it's a Dodge cause it's pulled over with a problem. Pretty impressive that beam doesn't crack.

APauls...it’s good to see that high powered mineral that I’ve been putting out, is paying off.....I think.?

I think the odds are better to win the lottery jackpot than to do that in MN.
