shed hunt
« on: March 22, 2019, 04:37:31 PM »
it was way too nice to watch the stock market go down. I worked until noon and then went to my folks place and hiked for 3-4 hours. the snow was still too much snow in some places, but I managed to scratch out one old shed. I swear I must have walked by this shed 100 times over the years @--0--0105 it was just an eaten up small 8 pt.

at least i'm on the board. I will give it a couple weeks and let the snow and ice go down. it was very slick out there and very wet. my feet looked like prunes when I finished  --7-8-9 --7-8-9

anyone else find and sheds?

I took a short walk around my 4 acres a day or so ago, didn't find anything.  All our snow is gone, too.

I found three a few weeks ago.  One was off the buck we had named Lucifer because he had matching split brow tines.

Haven't had a chance to go shed hunting this year.  Maybe next year the work schedule will be a bit more conducive to getting out there.

Ben - nice buck!  Sure hope you get to see him again next season!

I'm up to 10 for the year after yesterdays 2 1/2 hour walk. Found one early before all the snow then a set back towards the beginning of march, and 6 yesterday, nothing huge. a couple friends they are over 100 for the year, they think they will break their season record which is around 150 or 170 somewhere in that ball park. Good Luck finding them!

Wow, almost April and still have their headgear on....

NWIA - 150-170 sheds, man that is unreal.

I found one this morning while picking up litter in the field.  Small four point on it.  Gives me four for the year.

They have both lol. Their late season hunts when everything is concentrated on food, they can see easily 50 to 60 deer a night.
