The Best Deer Sheds of the Year

The Best Deer Sheds of the Year

Just because whitetail season is over doesn't mean it's time to veg out in front of the TV until September. Thankfully, we don't have to wait that long to scratch our whitetail itch. It's the perfect time to get back into the field and do some shed hunting — and to see what others are finding. The racks are large and plentiful if you know where to look.

Whether you're out there for fun or to compete with your buddies for the ultimate set of sheds, it's all about the passion for year-round whitetail madness. We teamed up with Craig Bell and Shed Heads to bring you some of the best deer sheds of the year.




Craig Bell started the Shed Heads Facebook page to help spread his passion for shed hunting on social media, but he's been an avid shed hunter since he was four years old. Since then, Bell has found thousands of shed antlers. His biggest set of sheds was 198 inches, while his biggest "dead head" is 203 inches. More than anything, Bell loves shed hunting with friends and family, as well as watching others enjoy the sport.
