AZ Sheds
« on: January 28, 2015, 08:18:32 PM »
Headed Arizona around the end of March. Will be there 6 days hope to be shed hunting at least 4 of those. Just curious to see if anyone has ever had any luck picking up bones down that way. Not looking for anyone's honeyhole just was curious?

We saw lots of sheds when we hunted on the Navajo Rez a few years ago but you can't keep them. Still fun to glass multple sheds from one location and find several on the ridges as you hunt. Good luck.

WA is my place of birth, but I now live on Arizona. March can be tricky depending on where you're going. The big boys will drop around the end of the month but if you wait too long they might get picked over. I went out in mid march a few years ago and didn't find any fresh ones and the snow had just melted. I found four that were from prior years.

You get the sense the bone from the big boys was already picked over?

I'll be going out real soon, myself  :drool:

I was in and around unit 9 the areas we hit were pretty picked over... The rain that came in last week told a pretty good story... But no one can find them all! :tup:
