Thanks guy's! It's amazing the difference between different areas. Our rut was over by the end of November (mostly) and our hunting season closed December 31st. I will say it would be pretty rough trying to hunt with 3 feet of snow and -40 degree temps! Ahhhh, January in northern Minnesota.

Hopefully there is interest in seeing these types of pictures as I like to share them! Hoping to beat my shed count from last year of 18.

Now that is really cool - thanks for taking the time to share.  Read an article on how you can train your dog to be a shed hunter - I need a different dog though.

I usually go shed hunting in April or May, just as soon as the snow melts. The theory is that the whitish sheds show up better against the darker background.  So far, in my property (4 acres) I have managed to find 3 little sheds, all within 50 yds of the house.
