   Sounds like a win-win to me. Any pairs on the day?

I didn't find any pairs yesterday, but it's pretty early in the season. 8)

Looks like a nice (and profitable) day for sure.  I fully understand your "need" to just get out and ride.   smiley_thumbsup

Very nice indeed,with my luck I'd have stuck a tine through both back tires of the 4 wheeler and that would've dropped the value of those sheds quite drastically  :D.

Very nice!  I've found the odd deer shed or two over the years but they are hard to find.  With all the moose we have around here I have never found a moose shed.  Maybe this year.

right after we bought our land here I fond a matching pair of antlers pretty close together on our first real walk around. soon after I was building our temp. cabin ( 12x12 on post) the first shovel scoop yielded a big complete spearhead. where we decided to try a garden back in the woods I tilled up a big horse, possibly mule shoe. another one  when we broke ground for our house. last summer my son and I went to our creek and I spotted the back edge of a deer skull and when I pulled it out of the sand it was attached to a huge rack well preserved in the sand.

so I guess a few things...
It seems I am a coarse thread bolt in a world of fine threaded nuts!
