Did you ever have one of those days that you just flat run out of time?

I had one last week. I am pretty much a "scheduled" type of guy, have certain things I like to have done by certain times.

I wanted to pull my camera, but I hadn't gotten my "top of the mountain" hike in yet, and looking at my watch it was one or the other.

I decided the camera, so headed in to get it. Pulled the camera and set it on a log that crosses a small mountain stream and was ejecting the sd card when something caught my attention......

Looking right down along the edge of the log into the creek.......

Now I can go out and look for sheds for hours and never come home with any. This was a very special find for me.

It was silty on the down side.

But on the flip side it was a light pink color. I have never saw that color in an antler before.

I am sure it had something to do with being in the water.

Neet find!

Great find; that would have made my day as I'm sure it did yours.

Not a big fellow, but totally cool to me...as if I would have taken my TTT of the mountain I probably would not have seen this ( different direction and less time to kill).

Nice find! I always ck around water source, never found one yet...just on the trails leading to or from.

great find

few years back found a skull with a giant Rack in a thick area that I always walk around , but this one time

never knew he was there (never saw him before in the august clover or bean fields) had no clue

Now, considering the other side is carrying the same, how often do you see palmation and eight points in such a compact package?

And if that wasn't enough I even got a photo that for some reason just seemed to get my attention. The deer in the background almost seemed.........

Good Shooting->->->->Craig

The color, my opinion only, is from the tannin in the water. Mountain streams generally have a lot of it in them. Cool find, nonetheless.

Nice find Craig. I always wanted to find sheds in the water. Have found a couple. I found some bleached out mulie sheds with pinkish tints to them in MT. I think yours may be pink due to blood in the core leaching through to the surface from being in that cold water. IMO. That buck probably would be a real heavy antlered one in maturity.

Thats really cool! The woods are just full of surprises,and best of all it doesn't cost a dime,you just have to look.I have found them right on the edge of a stream a couple times but never in the water,though I always look when I cross. Thats a pretty sight in the water,nice find. He has the right stuff to be a "shooter" in a year or two! Dave

Awesome find Craig!

Pink Ivory.

Might make some nice tip overlays if it keeeps that pink hue

Bouncing across the stream can usually shake one loose. I find them on the banks sometimes as well.

Really cool Craig,nice find!

An old-timer in Maine told me that he and his friends always used to walk along stonewalls in the spring to find sheds. I think it's the same reason--the impact of landing after a jump can shake the antler loose.

Sparkling clear water, and if a brookie was swimming past at same time to catch your eye, That would be greater. Still cool find. And to think he is getting horney agin. Maybe you will get to see him in fall. Hope.

Craig, you always seem to see things that a lot of us would not. Knowing you as I do, I think you will see this buck again and he will be bigger.

Frank, I have had it sitting out on the porch since last week, the pink has faded, but it is one cool little antler.

The palmation has me wondering what he is going to look like this year if he is still around.

Good Shooting->->->->Craig
