Default Shed Hunting.....

It's official.......I suck!!!

I've put in miles and miles over the years and I can't seem to have any luck at all.

Oh well....at least the exercise is good for me.

seems like a lot of sheds this year are in the grass or on the south side of timber or south facing hills........must be due to weather.....just picked up my game cams yesterday and a ton of bucks still have both sides....reallly late for that dont know why they have em so late this year....keep looking dont give up.....beat the squirrels to em.....

I have had a hard time finding sheds the last few years also. I just saw a buck with both sides on Sunday would not believe it if I had not seen it.

A buddy found a set last week that would go in the 180's with a 17" spread....I've been out once this year.....didn't find a thing.

Default Shed hunting

Had trail cam pics + saw a lot of bucks in mid-January that had already shed here. We looked yesterday and Saturday but didn't find anything. Was tough going as there is still 18" of snow on the ground in the areas we were looking. I think most of the sheds are probably buried-hope that protects then from the critters.
