They ate mine

Yeah squirrels will eat em if they get a chance. The racks have a high nutritional value. I left the rack of my 11pt I killed two years ago out to let it rot and dry in order to make a skull mount. I recently went out to get the rack to see if it was ready to mount it....on the left side of the rack the G3 and G4 were completely eaten off at the base. Live and Learn!

next time put it in a wire cage or metal garbage can

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

yeah i will. We normally leave all of our racks out and living in the woods with plenty of acorns and other food sources has kept any of the racks from being eaten before. But with the lack of natural food in the woods this yr , mainly because of the drought, we have had several racks show signs of nibbling.

[QUOTE=tnrebelguitarist;6470]yeah i will. We normally leave all of our racks out and living in the woods" yeah does that mean they are still attached to the deer walking around
