no 2017 sheds!
« on: January 12, 2017, 08:02:45 PM »
Just thought we should not jack the real thread. Instead, tell me how if I jump a deer in winter it has a butterfly effect. Also why do people feel they should try to shame people for posting a cool pic? Ok , I'm ready for the just educating response  :tup:

Here's the deal. One guy jumping a deer once or twice in the winter in deep snow, when they have limited forage available, and are dealing with predators already... probably not a big deal.

The problem arises when you get dozens of guys hiking through wintering grounds in January, months before these animals will likely see any reprieve from the weather and gain access to quality food again. They jump animals that are already stressed and use up the valuable fat/calorie reserves that they have.

For bucks, especially mature ones that were very active in the rut, this can be a death sentence. For does, if stressed enough, they can miscarry their fawns.

Most of our deer and elk went into this winter in pretty good shape, given the very warm start to December that we had. Some areas since then have experienced unseasonably cold weather for very extended periods, and that is a huge drain on calorie supplies for these animals.

So again, one guy moving animals once or twice, not a big deal probably, but continuously, by many people, turns into a big deal.

Wish it was just hiking.  Try snowmobiles.  Nothing like seeing any of several local shed hunters' sleds loaded up with the skags jammed full of torn off bitterbrush, and the sled trails all over the winter range. 
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

It's definitely a problem. Sleds are obviously far worse. I hate more regulation as much as the next guy, and as much as I hate to see it, it's going to take closures and fines to stop the insanity, since people won't self regulate.

Unfortunately folks who are just greedy for the sheds won't see the logic in any of this.

Keep it coming. I found this site last year while doing an internet search of sheds. Now I have this awesome site I check daily. Just found it kinda messed up the way people poke at a guy that found an antler. I get the dbgs that chase animals on automobiles but don't bust someones bls for hiking around :twocents:

Unfortunately the negativity is compounded due to all the crazy means the greedy ones use to stockpile their sheds.

Competetion and greed override people's common sense.  Sadly they benefit from people making good decisions.  Kinda hard to pat them on the back for making bad choices.

Meanwhile, here comes the ice.....

I just checked the updated weather in those parts, very disheartening. I was really hoping this warm front would melt off some of the lower elevation snow over there, not turn it into concrete.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.
