Shed hunting
« on: Feb 24, 17, 04:30:32 PM »
Got out yesterday and put a couple miles on my boots. What beautiful weather for February!  My buddy and I didn't find any shed antlers, but we did find some great deer sign. Anyone else been out lookin for sheds?

Found #7 Friday. Also ran into another guy shed hunting. He told me he saw a guy with a dog and another group of 2. He says you find find any? I said nope.lol  Crazy every year it gets tougher on public land.  Seeing boot prints at all my good spots.

Picked up a set of spike shed a 4 and 5 point side this afternoon.  5 point was from last year, few chew marks but not bad.

Good deal! I'm excited for this next deer season. Got a bunch of hunting related stuff done this winter and also got a few loose ends tied up on the boat earlier than normal too. The lack of ice fishing was depressing to say the least. Had to keep busy so I didn't end up in a rubber room! 😜

Is there a certain type of area/cover/landscape a person should be concentrating on to find sheds?

Thanks
