Shed Wars
« on: May 05, 2015, 09:56:55 PM »
I just saw an ad for a new show on the Outdoor channel, it's called "Shed Wars" and it airs on May 21st.  I think it is filmed in Colorado.  My guess is shed hunting is going to get even more popular.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

I cannot wait until the "this is EPIC" or the " Everything's EXTREEEEEEEEEME" fad wears off.  :tdown:

I wouldn't worry too much fellas. Most people are too lazy to shed hunt with effectiveness.

I sure am glad I got to experience "the good old days" with regards to shed hunting.   The popularity has gotten out of control in the last 20 years.

Right, but if only 5% are motivated, hard-core, effective shed hunters to begin with; increasing the overall shed crowd will increase what makes up that 5%.

Just finished watching it. I wish I knew where they were selling the sheds. I would be rich (According to TV ) Matched set mules for $600-$7000. Single brown for $12-$24 a pound

I haven't seen the show. I did spend a few days up in the White Mountains this spring before an unexpected event required me to return home early. In the short time I got to poke around for elk sheds, I ran into four shed hunters, and 0 sheds. One gentlemen in his 70s said he had already earned $1,500 by selling sheds year to date. Just by walking around. Word on the street was that Arizona elk sheds are $18 a pound. I found a half dozen on my hunt last year, and by that time all had turned white and were worth a lot less to me than if they were fresh brown. I'd rather them go to use to those who are willing to hike their ass off for them at 9,000+ feet than just to go to waste turning white and chalky.  :twocents:

Yeah, I can't believe some of those prices they were talking about.

I was looking forward to this show, but this is a joke. Although I like the moose sheds out of a boat.

Remember duck hunting got real popular for about 2 months.

And then the late (cold) season came.
