Just wondering if anyone has been out looking for sheds yet? I know it's still a little early but had a matching small set that must have fell within the past day or two. Also while walking a creek bottom picked up a dead head. Antlers were laying below a gravity feeder behind the house.20200220_123208.jpg

I figure the first week of March nearly all will be dropped. Years ago I started in February, walked a lot of miles and then my brother saw a nice 8 point still holding- that was Valentines Day. Since then I never look till March.

That's what I love about turkey season, seems like every time I go out on this specific property I hunt I always have luck picking up a shed or two.

My buddy saw a really nice 8 pointer, still holding both sides yesterday and chasing a doe.

Seen three decent 8pts last night that were still holding and a really big bodied deer with them that was not.

Just read in my news feed where shed hunting is regulated in some states. I guess I should not be surprised.

It's regulated in many western states due to the extreme pressure it puts on wintering elk/deer herds. The wildlife managers want to keep the pressure off those animals as much as possible due stressful winter months. Mule deer and elk herd up in winter months and if everybody and their brother is out there looking sheds and bumping all the pregnant cows/does and stressing the already rutted down bulls, it decreases their survival chances.

My one year old lab has brought me three sheds so far from around the house but none match and I did see a giant 8 two days ago and was still holding both sides

Nice sheds. Nothing as of yet....well aside from the beauty I found on last day of the season. My 6 yo daughter is loving the shed hunts. Good daddy daughter time.
