anyone been shed hunting yet?

Post by crazyfarmer » Fri Mar 04, 2011 4:59 pm

ive been so busy hanging stands on new 4000 acre tract of land I havent had much time to look in some spots here. But I did get a chance to ride over about 500 acres of fields. Found 14 sheds, 3 matching sides. One HUGE 6pt shed which is a 4.5+ year old deer. Ill post some pics when I get a chance but that was a good morning of shed hunting. I still have alot of fields to look over but I wont get to them until on the tractor(usually when i find most of them). But 14 in a single morning is my best to date. Those were on the new trac of land im hunting.

bad news, Ive found 3 solid bucks dead so far. All are 5.5+ year olds and huge deer for my area. Ill post some pics of those shortly... anyhow, just saying hello everyone and I hope all has been well here

Sounds like successfull shed hunting to me and it sounds like the new property should be pretty productive!! :)

We havn't seen the ground yet, but maybe in a few days, It's raining now. We got a lot of snow this year, in Michigan.
