    Nothin' wrong with that. I watch the elk all year long. I watch em in the winter to see where and when they are shedding and I watch them the rest of the year to watch their horns grow and find out where they are for hunting! I'm pretty much as elk obsessed as they come.

    Only problem with where the elk shed down here, it's all on the rich ranchers place and unless your a boy scout, which at 24 I've outgrown a bit, u can't touch em, there were over 50 bulls in there tonight. Probably 4 or 5 score over 350

    Ugh. Yeah that definitely sucks! I get that up here too. I have found that I tend to have an easier time gaining access though with being a girl. I dont think most ranchers take me too seriously. I tell them I want to look for horns and they probably think I want to go take pictures and have a picnic. Haha. One year I went on a ranch and came out with 35 deer horns in just a few hours, you should have seen the look on his face! maybe just put on a dress and make yourself look pretty and go ask permission lol

    Picked up some yesterday with my dog after feeding cattle. One real nice matched set from one that I was afraid had not made the season. I'll try to get my photos off the phone and uploaded here!

    I have seen a few small bucks that have started to drop, but all the elk seem to be still holding on!

    I was coming home from town last evening after my weekly indoor pistol league shoot and saw about 100 deer out feeding. I stopped and started looking and saw probably 10 that had horns, mostly forkies and small 3 bys. I kinda expected them to have mostly shed by now. Nothing big as anything in the 4 by class usually ends up in someones freezer. It's about a mile from my homeplace and lots of deer in these parts. Mostly hayfields, orchards and grass with lots of locals hunting on the all the private property. Every year I see a few big boys (180+) after the season closes and the rut starts, but not this year. The seem to disappear after rut is over. A friend has several thousand acres of sunflower fields about 10 miles away and called my to bring my quad and come over and help him look for elk sheds tomorrow. Will see how that comes out. He usually has a lot of elk winter over around his place.

    I am hoping to take the labs out this weekend and give it a shot. I've never shed hunted before so it should be interesting. I got the dogs finding antlers so hopefully it translates over to the field!
