Took a hike in the woods today on property that I used to walk on when I was a young kid, but haven't in a long time. Didn't find any deer sheds, but I did find what was left of an old Ford pickup truck, rusted down to almost nothing, but the words FORD could clearly be seen. Also found this opossum skull, still with all 50 teeth, so atleast i found something to take home.



Here's the Ford:

Cool finds though!

I once was doing the same thing and had a coon limp past me with a trap still attached to his foot. I killed him and the trap had name and number on it. Called to return it, and he last remembered setting that trap on his own property around 10 miles away.

Cool find. I always back off shooting coyotes and cats during deer hunting season because my rifle does too much damage to them. I've been thinking I'd like to have a couple of skull mounts of each so the damage wouldn't be a problem. They better watch out for e this Fall.

Thats what ive been thinking, Ive always wanted a full coyote mount, and I've killed one but it was with a 30-06, so full mount was gone. Wish I would have kept the skull though. Just gotta go find me another one.

Ha!! Yep they built the name tough anyway hahaha.

10 miles, that's a long way to go, that coon may have heard you coming as wanted you to kill him.

I have a few skulls around here, that I've either found or killed. And one gave to me: coon, this opossum, red fox, bobcat, even snapping turtle (actually a gift), and a small buck (gave to me by my uncle this week). This year I too would like a coyote!

Haha yeah it was ridiculous. I was amazed when he said it was that far. Especially with that dang trap! Turned out to be a pretty cool older fellow that I stayed in contact with till he passed away.

I'm gonna try to get my skull collection up this year. I just have a coon.

Thought about a squirrel skull, just because my fiance says I'd hang anything on the wall since its been so long since I've killed a good trophy.

Well I feel you. I don't really have any wall hangers. But I do have 6 squirrel tails hanging on my wall from one hunt haha.

Yep, tndeer seems to appreciate things like this and other stuff I post far more than fbook. I kill a squirrel to eat and post it on there and I get "poor squirrel", while here I get "Nice!" haha

I saw 4 bucks and a doe just a week ago behind my hose. The doe was apparently in heat... AND they all still had their headgear. One was an 8 with a rack that extended just a little wider than his ears. I was really surprised they were on the doe and also that they still had their racks!

You'd better be careful because those pictures look similar to what the experts on "Finding Bigfoot" see all the time and they're sure it's from a Squach!

I went Friday and found a skeleton of what I thought was a yote, until I moved it and a collar fell off. That was kind of disturbing. Also found coon skull and no sheds

Rebel, I saw a small buck in a field about 2 weeks ago also with some doe and had its antlers, but to see 4 around one doe this time of year...that is surprising for sure.

htseymour, that sounds about right, finding many things but no sheds. I know that feeling lol

iowavf, hahaha, I know, and then I heard this knocking up in a tree, thought I saw something fly from the tree....It had to be a squatch!!! LOL

How do you preserve your tails?

I preserve them by two different ways:
1. Just cut it off bone and all and put some salt on it, and let is dry for a while. The work is easy but the wait till its done is longer.
2. When skinning the squirrel, I'll pull the hide all the way off, and get to the tail and pull it straight back and the tail will be with the hide and then I just cut the tail off the hide and put salt on it, unroll it, and let it dry ....this way it drys faster, but its harder (for me anyway) to skin the tail, since sometimes wither the bone breaks or the skin tears.

I preserve rabbits feet like that number 1 as well. Just cut it off and let dry.

Hmmm, that's odd. I'm sure I looked strange, but I just got up and smelt the cut end of the tail, and I couldn't smell a thing, on any of them, even the ones that I've only had drying for 2 weeks today I think.
Maybe the squirrels where you live just don't clean themselves lol!

Who knows. I cut the tails off a few of mine and was gonna hang em up, and a buddy said they would smell awful, so I tossed them. I'll have to give it another shot.

My grandpa said they they used to just cut off squirrel tails, bone and all, and let them dry on their bicycles back when he was a kid...forget reflectors or those clicking things....squirrel tails add class for to a bicycle haha.
