Title: Anyone finding any lately?
Post by: Tbob on February 29, 2020, 06:04:13 PM
Anyone finding any deer sheds?? Iím headed out on Monday to look for blacktail sheds, but I really suck at finding those! Howís the snow on the Eastside of the cascades these days? I wouldnít mind heading out this weekend to look for some mule deer sheds. At least I have a fighting chance and finding one or two of those! Haha..

My son found this old blackie last week as we discussed our next move. Great to share that find with him.

Iíve seen 10+ mature bucks still packing in Palouse in last three days. Only seen one Buck I for sure I know dropped and it was a spike.

I was up there on Saturday, still seeing bulls with both sides. Now itís closed until April 1st. Should be some on the ground by then
Title: Re: Anyone finding any lately?
Post by: MLhunter1 on March 18, 2020, 08:13:45 PM
I saw a nice bull Saturday packing both sides still too. I doubt we will see a April 1st opener though. Iím bummed out over this closure.

Sweet moose sheds!! I went out yesterday to a place I like to go and there was still way to much snow.. going to head out tomorrow to check a brand new spot. Hoping for a little less snow.

Put about 8 miles on the past two days, found one old Blacktail shed. Saw one bull still packing, buddy picked up a fresh 6 point.  Yeah, our selfish butts were out in the woods! The horror!!  Hope the trees didnít give us the virus!

Since you keep bringing my comment up, Iíll keep commenting on yours. You understand itís not about being in the woods right? Clearly you donít give a crap about anyone else around you. Thatís unfortunate.

You guys can relax, didnít see a single person, walked from home!

You did. But what about everyone else?
Title: Re: Anyone finding any lately?
Post by: MADMAX on March 29, 2020, 05:33:45 PM
I wonder if anyone will stay at home after one of their kids or parents gets it
Iím betting so
I get that the woods are a safe bet
But are you really willing to risk lives for a piece of bone, a fish, a bird or a hike?
Title: Re: Anyone finding any lately?
Post by: trophyhunt on March 29, 2020, 05:54:49 PM
Way more risk in going to the store to buy whiskey or toilet paper!  Itís the woods, not a sporting event.
Title: Re: Anyone finding any lately?
Post by: lewy on March 29, 2020, 06:00:01 PM
I get the general concern and fear fellas but a guy hiking out his back door for some fresh air and a chance to find a shed is about as risky as staying on the couch. Letís not loose common sense with all of this!

Then you get guys from the west side where there are large population of people coming to our small towns. Possibly bringing that *censored* into a small community. I would say that is really selfish and no joking matter!

Thatís where Iím at. Besides staying home. People donít seem to have the logic in their heads to realize this is a problem. Refer to impending extended closure. Keep going shed hunting and fishing. Weíll be sheltered in place for months. Alls people care about is themselves. Thatís a shame.

There is people to ridicule, Trophyhunt going for a hike alone in the woods out his back door is certainly not one of them, get a life keyboard cop

Oh and what are you doing harassing those poor elk while they are trying to winter weeks ago when so few had even shed yet :rolleyes:

smart guy. I like it! There are a lot of things I would like to say but I will refrain. Itís guys like you who go crying when there feelings get hurt and that is against forum rules. Have a great day bud!
Title: Re: Anyone finding any lately?
Post by: lewy on March 29, 2020, 06:40:53 PM
Lol surely no crying goin on here, all I did was advocate for a guy who solely went for a walk out of his own back door in the woods! There is no risk in that! In case your worried about it my family and I have been overly careful about what is goin on and are fully prepared to hole up for as long as need be

Convenience stores, Fast food, car dealerships, forestland production, non emergent doctor visits, home depot, wal mart, gun stores, many construction projects, the list goes on..... lets be honest throw up some plexi glass and tape and its business as usual. Is there some impact sure, but we haven't even scratched the surface of closing down. I think that's what chaps many, myself included. Stay out of my way and I will stay out of yours. Don't do stupid stuff to make you feel good about it.  The government is more than willing to shut down public lands, which even factoring the travel interaction is likely much less impact than the closing the mcdonalds drive through window. If closing down public lands, lets start with a REAL assessment of what is essential. Emergency response, electricity, Hospitals, gas, (cardlock is everywhere) limited food. TIGHTEN up the support systems for these needs as well.  If we aren't ready to make the tough choices, then quit slamming folks as selfish.

This is comical. How did we really get to the point that driving down a public road en route to some fresh air  is somehow ďinfecting all of your small communitiesĒ.... give me a break.

I thought all forest service land and state land was closed I mean  I'm usually out shed hunting but I'd like things to get back to normal ..... Tomorrow there gonna extend the date,  and in guessing fish and game is gonna cancel turkey and spring bear  which I  have but sooner we listen *censored* will be done

Forest service land is not closed, just campgrounds, major trailheads, stuff like that.  They didnt just close down the national forests

That's good to know because on Saturday I was up slippery Creek and forest service made us leave saying everything was closed So much Baton for mation out there and some people are misinformed hard to tell what's right or wrong these days
