    Wow!! I can't wait to go shed hunting, but there is 9 feet of snow in the bush here. You lucky southern folk!!!!
    People in SUV's and suburbs will kill more game animals than a man with a bow, ever could.

    Nice set of moose palms so far. Too much fresh snow lately to look for others.

    Can't pick 'em up here til May 1st, I know where I'm going to be on that day though. Have been driving by a really nice 180 class buck about once a week, he only had his left side when I saw him on Wednesday. I have seen a few small sheds laying around in the sagebrush while I was working and marked them on the GPS, I'm sure I'll start seeing a lot more after the 2 ft of snow melts.

    Anyone know why the G&F only limits shed collecting in WY west of the Cont Divide? Doesn't really make sense to me.

    I used to live in the city, drove up every weekend to see how far into the hills I could get. Every year I waited to June or later to get in. So in 09 I had a bright idea to move up to the mountain and live there so I could be closer. The only drawback, is just because I moved closer doesnt mean I can hit those hills sooner. I just get to stair out the window at the 5 foot of snow instead of a drive up to see it.
    SERIOUS cabin fever sets in about now. All my gear is gone through, cleaned, packed, checked, held, and touched...lol
    Sometimes I even put on my pack and chase the dog just to find something to do.....
    So in other words, NO, I have not gone out shed hunting yet.....
    I hunt because........

    My understanding is to make sure the animals are not being disturbed on there wintering grounds because prior to that people would chase animals with snowmobilesin early spring until the antlers fell off.
