    Shed Hunting Anyone

    Hey all I have been off the grid for a while. Its good to be back. Well I have FINALLY got a few days off and I am headed out to scour the hillside in search of shed antlers. Unfortunately the weather forecast is calling for snow.! Have any of you been out?

    Could be a bit early. I have heard if a few being picked up. I have been told for years that the bigger bucks drop earlier. I have shed hunted most of my life but I have never been able to gather enough evidence to support this. Does anyone know if this is true and do you have some lead to back it up?

    Oh crap! I woke up this morning to a pile of snow in my yard. What a bummer I doubt it's gonna melt off before Tuesday morning. Maybe I better just head to Targhee and ski the fresh powder.

    Yeah... Both. Maybe they drop early here who knows. I sent some pics to my buddy in Cali and he thought it was early too. A while ago, a customer of mine, game warden, said the latest he had ever seen a buck with horns was Valentines Day. He got a report of someone shooting a deer on V-Day and didn't quite get it. When he got to the scene, it was a big old buck, he couldn't believe it still had horns. The story etched in my mind for dates. Since then I balance the dates, not too early so I don't push anything but also try to be amongst the first in the field.

    Here is some fun pics. My daughter with her first find on a year old shed and one of my better days this year.

    Thought I would also share my best single find this year... A match set with another shed, circled, 10 ft away.
