Still packing
« on: February 15, 2016, 09:22:57 AM »
I saw 5 spikes. And one HUGE 7x7 bull still packing Saturday. Anybody seeing any elk drop yet? I think still too early.

Bulls are in herds and the cows have disappeared. They probably won't drop til March sometime

This is why statewide shedhunting seasons are more than likely in the the works. Elk don't shed till mid march. Less than 5% drop by mid march.

And I'm sure that No one here has picked a freshy before March 15th... You know what they say.. If you can't beat em join em... Statewide shed seasons will do nothing but keep the innocent...innocent and well those who don't care in the first place will continue on the same path... Just like what happens at the feed stations every year...

A very small percentage drop in late feb.  Most in April.  Probably all cows you saw .  All the bulls I see are solo or in bachelor herds this time of year.  Can't wait for the race, have been getting a few deer sheds in the meantime

Maybe not pay, but no shed hunting between this date and that date kind of like the restrictions at oak creek and other feed lots.
If you spend any time watching the yahoos on Facebook talking about chasing the animals down on quads and snow machines, you'd understand better why the potential exists for this season.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

If they came out with a shed hunting season you would still have everyone out there looking harassing the animals before season and hiding the sheds they find to come back and grab opening day.  Just like the guys who sneak into oak creek prior to may 1st.  Always thought it was funny when the gate opens and a guy walks straight to a big pile of antlers out of sight.
