So what is the game plan for finding sheds? Just wander through the woods?

Same as hunting for meat. Go to an area where you know deer or elk hang out the time of year they are dropping their antlers and start walking. A dog is great help and kids are awesome too since they are so close to the ground lol. I take mine almost everytime i go. My boys are 5 & 8 my daughter is 2.  Hoping tomorrow my daughter will find her first one :-)

I finally get to post! Found these fresh beauties (separately) right off the road, sitting on top of the snow...can't wait to see what I find when I actually exert myself snowshoeing this weekend!

Well no luck yesterday but kids had a great time! My buddys found a couple massive 4pts and a couple other ones. Heading back over in a few hours no kids this time so I'll be able to spend more time hiking and in the cold. Kids can only handle so much walking before they are done lol (ages 2&5) but i still had a great time and enjoy every moment of them being with me weather its all day out or just a few hours. :-). Nice sheds again everyone and hopefully I'll be able to add some more when i get home sunday night. Good luck to everyone thats in the woods this weekend

Nice work getting the kiddos out :tup: both my older ones have a blast going. But I'm still pretty cautious about pushing them to far in the weather department.  Envious I can't get out this weekend stuck at work. Hopefully soon. Good luck!

40 ticks between me my dog and niece, 1 broken boot lace, many many miles on the ol' boots, 500 miles on the truck and some vary nice scenery we got this little guy :-)

Got back over early sat morning and it had snowed about 3" and was still snowing. I should have checked it out when the kids and i was over Thursday but i didnt i knew there was snow up there just wasnt sure how much. So any way got over just about daylight and started the ol' truck up the hill but when we got to the road that takes us back to my spot i was a little shacked to see a 5' burm of snow from the snow plow.  :bash: we than decided to drive around and check some new areas. We spent half the day driving scouting and getting permission to shed hunt not seeing many bucks without head gear i decided to make a phone call and head across the river to oregon. I called a hound hunting buddy of mine he told me they had been seeing lots of bucks a week ago and this wee everything they had been seeing had dropped so i hit the gas and we were off across the big river and before we knew it we were at his place. Made introductions with his family and my niece. Since we only had 2 hours of daylight left we headed up to the hills so he could show us where we would be heading in the morning then back to his house for dinner and much needed rest. Sunday i opted to hunt an area close to his house that was holding several bucks and a hug migrating heard. (Hes not a shed hunter) so we hit the hill side and everything was looking promising until we started to run into people. Must be the local honey hole we ran into 20 people on foot and 3 on horse back. Oh well had great time managed to find one and had a guy pick one up in front of me. Seen lots of new country and got to catch up with an old friend.


Thanks for taking the time to read

The pic with the kids is from our trip over Thursday
My daughter had a great time she just didnt want to her pic take
