Looks like a great find. I love finding skulls. Post up the jawbone pics! Last skull I found was a doe and she was ancient.

I'll get a jawbone pic later tonight. I found a doe skull 50 yards from this one. It was a young doe though.

I wasnt really shed hunting either.. just got bored and had an extra cam so I went to put it out and lucked up.

Bone piles get me excited every time, never know if it's a 56 year old doe or a monster buck.... ever since the bone pile with the 170" skull back in 2010, I have always looked for a skull every time I see deer bones.

Yep, bone piles are always a good sign of a skull.. I usually find the bones first but I have just foumd random skulls too. I've actually found more skulls than I have sheds.. way more counting doe skulls. I'm hoping to beat this one pretty quick with sheds from some of my trail cam bucks but as to whether or not I actually find them is a complete guess.

This deer scored right at what I expected- between 125-130. 127 3/4 to be exact.. I can't imagine how exciting it was to find the 170" buck.

when I found that buck it was before I knew we had big deer in the area. I was new to deer hunting and in fact had only been shed hunting, this was before I even went deer hunting. I had a successful shed season though and even found a couple of sheds in June in the same area I found the skull. It grossed in the 180s.



Now post up those jaw pics!

No rush, just get em up asap! ;\)

I will say finding the doe skull a few days ago was about as exciting as finding a good buck skull. It's not every day you see deer teeth worn almost down to the bone, that must have been one wise old deer and judging by the size of the skull, she was a big one too.
