I feel I'm pretty blessed sometimes, to just saddle up and go out our back gate, as our ranch is surrounded on 3 sides by the Rio Grande Nat'l Forest. It's always hard to beat riding a sure footed mountain horse in the Rocky Mts.
I've found a lot of sheds in the last 7 years, but I guess I've thinned them out so much, I don't find as many anymore. Today though, I found a 4pt. Elk and a matched set of Mulie antlers that were about 100 yds. apart. I also jumped 7 Elk and would have gotten a lot closer before they took off, but I think they overheard the conversation I was having with my horse and mule! I attached a pic of the brown, better Mule Deer antlers found within a few miles of here hanging on the garage railing. I've got a huge pile of Elk & Mulie sheds in an antler garden elsewhere.
Retirement takes some getting used too, but I think I got the hang of it.

Very nice. I do sometimes miss my horses since I sold them all. They had become giant eating machine pets since you have to feed them everyday even if you aren't riding them.
Congrats on your retirement.
