Matching Big Brown Elk Sheds? Yeah, That’s a Successful Shed Hunt

Hushin and Mtn Ops hit the hills looking for antler sheds. They have a great outing, and cap it off with an absolute monster set of matched elk sheds.

Eric Chesser of Hushin takes his friends from Mtn Ops out to the mountains for a some shed antler hunting. The guys from Mtn Ops are new to the shed hunting game. This is, for most of them, their first time hunting, and they’re hoping to break the ice with some antlers of their own.

It doesn’t take too long before Eric is on the board with a nice “little six”. Then the guys get super excited when the two brothers, Jordan and Casey, from Mtn Ops each find the matching sides of brown elk antlers to make a set. Then they find another brown set!

Part II of the video set is a capper. Matt from Mtn Ops loses his elk shed virginity by glassing a big white shed, while Eric and Casey are across the valley from where Eric glassed a monster brownie. It’s a beautiful horn and they retrieve it for Matt. But when Eric sees his shed, both he and Casey are blown away by the size of the antler.

“I’ve found a lot of horns, guys. I have not found a big one like this for…a long time,” says Eric. It is a monster. Now they need to match it. “I’m not leaving until we do,” he says.

They find it. “That’s shedication right there. We are shedicated!” says Eric. They put the two antlers together. “Oh my gosh! Is that not the prettiest bull you’ve ever seen?” “Yeah, absolutely,” answers Casey.

It’s pretty exciting and pretty dang cool. Three matching brown elk sheds and a handful of other antlers. It was a good day, a very good day.
