I think everyone is a bit standoffish to post sheds this year after the backlash the first poster received last year.

Found this one.  Looks like last year's but was on a trail that I checked last year.  Was probably a late one.  The trail goes under some low hanging fir branches and always seemed like a good place to knock one off. Very heavy but not a huge base.

Decided to go shed hunting two weeks ago in an area that is heavy in Blacktail, controlled access, and I KNOW of only one other guy who specifically shed hunts the area (I think any sheds found by other people are incidental finds, like the landscape crews). Came out into an East facing clearing and picked up the large one on the right...decided to continue down that edge of greenbelt and found the one third from the right. Looked pretty hard but couldn't find the match for either. Continued looking for an hour or so more and on my way back I happened to look along an edge that transitions from grass to Scotch Broom, also East facing, and found another year-old shed, then immediately spotted the match about a foot away.

This is my first post in the forums...just wanted to say I really enjoy seeing your guys' finds!

First sheds of the year. Picked up two on Tuesday in a new area for me. Technically both blacktails but...I'll admit that they are benchleg sheds. Shed on the right is my biggest deer shed to-date. Found it tines down, buried in the leaves. It is at least from a 2017 shed, maybe a bit older. Fingers crossed for round 2 tomorrow!

Interesting how people are wearing their hunting gear out to find sheds. Is that to air it out then get it smelling like sweat and break it in? To each is own.

My ďhunting gearĒ is my hiking gear. Only difference for me is early season/late season gear. Iíd think for most itís the most versatile/ best stuff they own. It always amazes me when I see guys hiking around in Blue jeans. Must pack huge jugs of goldbond with um

LOL well personally I wear my hiking pants, an under armor top or merino wool something comfortable. I myself choose not to wear my Kuiu or Sitka hunting gear as I don't want it getting heavy human scent on it or wearing it out as I pay a lot more for my hunting gear than my daily squirrel chasing, hiking, mushroom picking, scouting gear. But that could just be me doubt it. Its just like I see guys at work wearing their hunting gear and go straight to hunting camp which I prefer not to do. :twocents:

That's your problem. You buy sitka. Guess sitka can't take everyday use in the woods cause it wears out to quick. :chuckle:

Such a unique bull! One of the coolest 5pts you'll ever see :tup:
Ya, one of the weirder ones I've found. It's actually got a 6th point on the back right above the base, and another point down on the base was broken off.

The short version is that my wife found this set when nature called. We were baiting bears and pulled over to look at a potential tial site in idaho. When we hopped out the truck we  noticed a tire leaking. My dad and I patched it and turned on the compressor as my wife answered nature's call. I popped my head up when she screamed my name over the compressor and walked back on the road with this pair.

Found this BIG boy. We spent a lot of time looking for the other side. My brother found the other side of this bull the year prior, and same thing, couldnt match him up. 3 options...
1) Someone else has the other sides
2) This bull packs his other side around for a while before dropping.
3) He only grows one side each year!  :chuckle:

Picked clean or no elk? The usual spots that produce were vacant of bulls for us this year. Had to go elsewhere to find the 60+ we picked up. Must have been the late winter changed their usual habits?  :dunno:

I'm guessing "on the ground" is the best answer you are going to get.  Shed hunting locations are a tough one.  If you find a good spot it is normally good year after year.  Posting the location on an open forum for all to see is the best way to ruin a good spot.

A lot of miles have gone into finding good spots. And even those good spots get covered with more and more miles. So I'm going to have to go with rainier's answer... On the ground... most of the time

Yeah, I was stoked when I found it, I was walking a blocked off road, and looking in the ditch. I could just see the tips sticking up, there was so many points sticking up, I thought it was 2 sheds laying on top of each other. Now I got to wait for the brush to fade away this fall so I can try to match it up.
