Title: 2021 sheds.... Post them here.
Post by: Rainier10 on January 05, 2021, 01:37:50 PM
Figured I better get this going.  I did find an old chalky two point muley shed this weekend but left it at my cabin without taking a pic.  Still a little early for the brown gold to be hitting the ground hard but it is starting.  I have seen a few unicorn spike deer and one small raghorn bull packing just one side.  That really seems early.

Good luck to you guys and gals and please hold off on the hard shed hunting until spring.  I'll come back and post a pic of the one I stumbled on while working my property this weekend when I get back up there.

Really early for elk, I hope your message is heard, hold off till spring please!  The more popular shed hunting gets, they more pressure on the herds too early.  Good luck this year all, be patient.

I didn't get a close enough look to see if he was broke off.  Maybe he just got his butt and antler handed to him by a big guy.  I had 7 other big bulls all still packing, they normally don't drop until february around my place and they have normally moved up higher when they do drop.

Cameras have all 3 bucks with dropped antlers about 2 weeks ago 1 looks like it dropped a while ago.. 2 3 pts 1 2 point all bachelored back up lowland blacktail around 500 ft.. Had food blocks and salt up.. Nothing touched the salt but a big sow with 2 cubs came in around Jan 15th and ate everything in about 2 minutes.. Went looking after work today no luck.. But after seeing these bucks today makes me wonder how much one can actually hurt these blacktails by hiking around early.. They didnt seem to care about us and meandered off.. Up in the snow and eastern WA I understand but lowlands seems these deer have it easy although the population is low..to many cats with multiple on cam.. Cant wait for the big blackie sheds to be posted

You hurt blacktail not at all in my opinion. Blacktail have no problem finding food and I think itís laughable that having to run a hundred yards somehow makes them drop dead. If they bother running at all.

I've seen two different herds of elk already returning from wintering grounds in the last week, only spikes with cows unless they dropped already. Spring must be coming early. One of my horses is shedding out already too! I hope that means something!

First shed I have ever found while intentionally looking for them. Gnarly ol blacktail forky. The pup's first real shed hunt as well, so of course I let her think she found it.
Took her a while as its the first shed she has been around that hasnt been handled by me first. Also the first time she has been out in any kind of woods or anything that doesnt have clear trails. Out in openings and on trails she will wander and search, but in the thick stuff it was hard to get her out from under my feet. Just need to get her out more and more comfortable with it I guess.
Bummed I forgot to take an "as it lays" picture first. Was next to a real obvious bed that has clearly been used for many years and was covered by dirt and such. Just the mouse chewed parts sticking up.

Still looking for some browns to get the pup on her first fresh sheds for the smell of them vs the old ones that for sure have some of my smell on them as well. But so far I have 3 forky blacktail this year for 4 half day trips. I think its cool how these 2 fork horn sheds both probably dropped last year have the same crook on the front point or "mainbeam" Then after looking at a lot of my trail cam pics and the buck I shot there this year I noticed A LOT of the bucks in the area all have that upturned mainbeam. Also, 90% of the bucks in the area have that fat bladed type G2. My 2020 buck, the bigger forky, and a ton of my trail cam pics. But I still have yet to see a single buck with even a slight split of the G2. Most are big old mature fork horns or 3x2. My 2020 buck was the first legit 3x3 I have seen in the area.

Our shed hunting is almost completely incidental. Two today for us while checking our game cams, a small 3 point that was old and chewed up and this older whitetail shed.

Man looks like you had a good day. Hopefully you guys are out trying to fill a spring bear tag. I always enjoy watching your videos. I drew this year and Iím headed over for my second trip on Monday. I finally got my first bear picture of the year on Thursday here in Central Washington so Iím getting pretty excited to get back over and hopefully shoot a bear and possibly pick up a few sheds in the process too

No spring tag this year. It was rather cold last night and this morning. We actually got a light coat of snow last night in the mountains. All the south facing slopes this morning were covered in snow.

Good luck on your tag. Season's just about to pick up.

Good question. Iím thinking it is since it was perfectly on a south slope in the open getting as much sun as possible and the weeds under it didnt look like it was sitting there for 2 years. They shed in January right? So 6 months sitting in the sun? Idk for sure but I love it lol
