Post by: SuperiorArchery on January 11, 2017, 05:50:18 PM
 Share your 2017 sheds here.

   Bucks are starting to drop.  Don't push deer in order to get your first sheds of the season, they are not going anywhere!       Good Luck to all!

I agree. Its pretty tough going in a lot of places right now for them, I think its best to leave them alone for a bit.

I think that with the right circumstances, you can shed hunt this time of year, even with the conditions we have, and not bother animals, but its VERY tough to do. It involves a lot of glassing from a distance, and patience. Find the deer, find the horns, wait for the deer to move on, go get the horns. Most won't give it that much time.

Why does everyone assume that to find a shed this time of year means you're pushing deer? As 7mmfan noted, it IS possible to to do it without pushing them.  Who's to say that the author didn't glass and wait for the deer to leave before moving in on that shed?  I found my first shed last year in January, right along side a paved county road, with no animals in sight.  I get sick of the holier-than-thou attitude about this every year.  Everyone I know who shed hunts (including myself) are very diligent and cautious to not to bother the animals.  We belong to conservation groups, do volunteer work days throughout the year and respectfully hunt deer and elk in the fall.  The herd's welfare comes first in every aspect.  So it would be nice just once to not have to listen to a pious lecture just because someone found a shed in January. Just my  :twocents: I know my posting this won't change anything, preach on...

Hey genius, my comment was made after the author tells us not to push deer then posts a pic of a fresh shed he found in the deep snow in a bedding area. No preaching here, just stating the true definition of the pot calling the kettle black.

Looks like a nice bone too :tup:

Congratulations on all your conservation and volunteer work. A little defensive don't you think. I helped an old lady cross the street today, doesn't mean I get to chase the next one with my truck.  The OP stated he stumbled on the horn, doesn't sound like he was gassing for hours and then went and got it after the deer left. Either way congrats again on your conservation groups and all your volunteering.

I think that most experienced hunters/outdoorsman know better. What I fear is the whole hoard of newbies spurred on by youtube videos who see a report of fresh bone hitting the hills and running deer and elk all over hell's half acre.We all know the sight of a human in the winter isn't going to kill these animals, but a bunch of hipsters with new boots, Firstlite clothing out from under the Christmas tree and a lifted Chevy running after them hoping the horns will fall off might.  So, based on  that, I feel we as a group, owe it to ourselves to practice a little caution when talking about shed hunting, especially this time of year. That's all.

I'm in an area I haven't explored much before. I was soaking wet. It was getting dark and I got a little turned around. I was going in the right direction but coming out in a lower spot. My phone died, and with it my map. It was pouring, getting dark, and misty from the rain and I thought it was a field. Took 2 steps and I was up to my waist.  Added some water to the inside of my boots but by then I didn't care. Walked around the swamp which was a pain (and painful) in the dark because it was thick and nasty, but I was worried the swamp might be deeper in the middle. A lot of trouble for a horn but I'm going back tomorrow to look for the other side.

Getting stir crazy with the winter conditions in most of wa, and bored staring at ferns and salal in the BT woods close to home. We decided to take a trip to Oregon look at some different area and better weather. Learning a new spot seems to always have a hiccup or two and this was no exception, but we did manage to pull up a few including this good 4 with an eyegaurd.

Iv always had a tough time with finding a match to a blacktail shed.  Typically when i find one i just keep on going, in the past i have spent hours looking around the immediate area and have never found the other side so now i just keep on moving.  Some ppl find them right next to each other and i'm happy for them but i just don't have that luck.

Thanks. Burning a lot of boot leather. Walking a lot slower. I've found some cool horns but I think this one is the coolest. It's not a fresh one. Sure one mature old deer. The stuff I found it in was almost impossible to walk in.

First time finding sheds with my daughter - we spent the whole day driving and hiking around wherever she wanted to go and talking about everything a 5 year old can think of to talk about. I spotted them and guided us in the general direction until she "found" them. Made a memory that will last my whole life I think and a memento to last for her as well.

I do the same with my 5 yr old.  It seems like he's always asking me if he can hold one of the sheds he has found.  I like the way you wrote on it, I take a grinder and flatten a spot on the white bottom of the antler and write the date with a sharpie.

I just used a dremel tool and went in 1/8" or so so that it could never fade. I figured it will be cool to look back at years down the road.

Talked to a guy at the gate on Friday, he's up there almost daily. He found 1 small 5 pt on Kapowsin side, and he ran into Clyde on Eatonville side, and Clyde found a 6 OT right on the side of the road where they were parked.

Walked 11 miles this weekend, found 8 sheds this weekend. The big 2 point had a 4 inch eye guard, the big 3 point I found last weekend and scored it at 61 inches, had 5 1/2 inches of mass around the burr and first point, along with a 3 1/2 inch eye guard. The other 3 point had a 14 inch back tine.

Still packing both sides? I've seen a few spikes with 1 or both still on, but no big Bulls. I hope maybe some of the big Bulls I saw still haven't dropped yet. I saw 10 6 pt or better Bulls one day down low when there was a foot of snow up there, so I been hitting those areas hard looking for the sheds, but still haven't found anything fresh where I saw all those Bulls.

  I'm so bummed out this year, I had knee surgery 2 weeks ago and am just beginning to be able to walk without extreme pain, my knee feels like a old rusty door hinge, so want to get out there and go for a hike but the voices in my head are saying don't do it, great finds everyone.

She's just a young pup going along for the hike. I do have a good Chessy that has found me a few blacktail antlers. He's never brought any to me, but if I keep my eyes on him he'll stop and spend a little extra time sniffing around and sometimes it's bone. Good dog...

Left side 6 pt scored 165 3/8

Right side 7 pt scored 180 5/8

Puts him at 386 with 40inch score credit.

If left side was matched he'd be a 370 bull, but if the right side was matched he'd be a 400 bull. Love seeing big mature genetics!

There's still plenty to find out there! I'd say the majority of the ones I find aren't freshies! And still haven't found anything as impressive as your bull!

compared to how many you find.

He's found two elk sheds and three, maybe four deer sheds this year. And he's just over a year old, will get better as he gets older. He is primarily a duck dog, but I took two or three weeks when he was a few months old to reinforce positive feedback when he brought back bones or other good smelling stuff. He usually finds at least one bone of some sort per day while working in the woods. I don't think you need one specifically for shed hunting, just find a good nose with high hunting drive and they ought to pick it right up!
