    Looks like a shed out of a deer farm.

    I found a shed with a brand new tractor tire! Farmer Brown wasn't happy about THAT little discovery! LOL!
    Bubba, you can get a pedicure at WalMart if you want.

I was amazed at how many deer droppings there were; I swear, I didn't once go twenty yards without finding a deposit. Our woods are carpeted with deer poop! Not a bad problem to have .....
    Wall to wall deer poop is the way it is where I hunt in Michigan.

    I hope Bashing Bubba doesn't call this photo squirrelly.

    Look how much larger the left antler appears to be than the right one, and how much larger the deer's rack is than the hunter's body
    That is lens distortion.

    Good deer, where did you get it ?
    Jimbo - That is not one of my pictures.
    I found it on the internet in a google search about wide angle lens distortion, and how it makes objects close to the camera seem much larger than real life.

    Bubba - Are you telling us that there is a difference in the antlers of farm-raised deer and free-ranging deer, and that you can tell the difference by looking at a picture of an antler shed?
    I think you should submit a inquiry to Outdoor Life offering to write an article about it.

    Here is another deer shed antler.
    No two alike.
    BTW, when a deer sheds its velvet, the antler tips are very pointy, and during the season the tips become rounded and lose about an inch of length.
    On a 12-point buck, his Boone and Crockett score could suffer a 12-point loss if taken very later in the season.
