"Nice Deer Set and Cool Story"
Photo provided by: Clayton Stewart

Clayton Stewart writes, "Found this set from a 170" buck a few weeks ago. I noticed the first shed on the side of a hill while I was glassing up some smaller bucks. While I was waiting for the deer to feed to the back side of the mountain, so I wouldn't disturb them in my hike up, I turned my scope to the top of the mountain to look at an eagle, and there, underneath his talons, was the other side. When the herd was out of sight and I knew I wasn't going to stress them, I started up. The eagle came back to that antler several times before I got there, almost like he was guarding the thing. It was brittle and chalked from being in the most exposed place on the mountain and it isn't a monster set, but out of all of the other bone in my stack, this set has one of the coolest memories attached to it."
