« on: February 23, 2020, 01:26:06 PM »
I found my first shed when I was putting out minerals. just small 3 pt. looking at the cams, it looks like all but one small 1/2 dropped 10 days ago. i'll get out in a couple weeks to look for the rest. I don't want to stress them now. it's been a tough winter

anyone else finding any?

I haven't found any sheds these last few years. Since we have  a dog now, I thought of trying to train her to hunt sheds, but right now  I'm not sure I want to put in all that work. Every time I take her out, she's on a 20ft leash.

I found one just today when I was out fertilizing some trees.  Will put a photo in a previous string shortly, as this one came from the big one I had on the trail cam last fall.  Biggest shed I've found, but I'm not a hard core shed Hunter either.

i was surprised how deep it was here. it's still knee high once you break through the crust. makes for a lot of work for me and the deer.

I hiked for 3 hours today and not a single shed. I thought I knew where they would be. I guess I was fooled again. ##$%#13 I only covered 1/3 of the property. man was it icy.

be careful

Things are very different here Yari.  Snow is all gone, we've had sunshine and wind for several days with temps well above freezing in the daytime.  Ground is actually pretty solid and not much mud.  Shouldn't be anything here covering up the sheds.

50's here, but lots of snow in the woods. i'm not complaining. it's been deep snow since November and tough on the deer. the cabin is much worse. it's a good thing I have bear tags up there. I doubt the deer hunting will be good again

I picked up a 4 and broken 5 pt side. both could be decent deer this year. 3 and a 4 year old. the 4 year old can't quit fighting and busting his rack. last year he broke all but 3 pts. he is in rough shape, all worn down to

 I also found a spine and rib cage. I don't know if it was dumped by some slob or it died on the property. I looked for the rest, but nothing. that was odd.
