Anyone going JW tomorrow?
« on: April 30, 2015, 08:45:00 AM »
Will be my first time participating in the madness, what can a guy expect? Ive never found a shed in all my years of hunting and hiking. Not a hoarder or bone crazy type person, just looking for a couple unique hat racks!

Any tips for a shed noob?

Get there really early and be prepared to be in a long line.  I will say the elk did not spend much time congregated so the shed hunting should be more spread out it may effect the numbers of people that show up.  I don't know I avoid crowds in the woods so I have avoided this annual people zoo.

And you use of JW made me think why would people be going Jehoviahs witness tomorrow. :chuckle: :chuckle:

I figured it's worth a shot, I'm gonna spend most the day there looking for sheds, then it's on to the morel woods for the next day or so. That's my true obsession!!

Go high and burn boot leather till you drop then turn around and head back to your rig. Keep your eyes on the ground of course. :chuckle: Good luck! :tup:

One small, chewed up 2 point deer shed. Didn't see a single elk shed, or anyone carrying one

No luck here either.  The only thing I brought home was a bunch of ticks!
