Last week I found a shed off the buck I call Holyfield for the first time in the four years I’ve been following him. Not only was this the first time I’d held one of his sheds, but it was also the moment I realized he had survived the 2017 season. Here’s a quick look at that moment.
A lightweight, quiet mid-layer designed to be utilized as both an outerwear piece as well as a layering option as temperatures drop.

By Mark Kenyon I spent last weekend in Iowa for the 2018 #ShedRally event and boy oh boy, did we ever have a great weekend of shed hunting. Our vlog this week covers the good times we had in Iowa shed hunting with our friends and the boatload of nice antlers we found along the way. Special shoutout and thanks to Ben Harshyne, founder of Hunterra Maps, for allowing us to shed hunt his farm with him!
