I have rounded up quite a few blacktail sheds and I always look for the nastiest and thickest terrain.  Good luck.

Hi All,
    Never did any shed hunting, but have recently thought of doing so.  I am around the JBLM, Lacey/Olympia, WA area and was wondering when would be a good time around here to start looking.  Basically, I plan on searching the areas I like to hunt (tree rubs).  I suppose these are as good a place to start.  Don't plan on spending too many hours out there, mostly just want to refine my hunt areas with more detailed scouting and brush prep (create quiet way in).

Anyway, I've read a lot of Late FEB / Early MAR time-frame  but no specifics on what state or area they are at (WA, OR, CA, ID, etc...  Or is it presumed that all the BT's shed around the same time-frame?

I've found fresh sheds as early as Christmas time for Blacktails in South West Washington... and have seen bucks with antlers on as late as Feb 15th same basic location.   I personally don't really start focusing on looking for sheds until the middle of February.

MID Feb it is.  I think that is usually when we actually get the sticky stuff
