    SHED HUNTING THREAD - PICs INCLUDED

    I have a buddy in north Dakota. He's been haulin em in for a while now. Triple digits already. In fact he got 74 in 2 days!! And in response to when to start looking. In your case, being on private land, I'd say now is perfect. Maybe a week or so late but your definitely not too late. I'm a public land shedder , so I have to start in December every year. By this time, the public that I walk is completely wiped out. Good luck!

    WE always talk about mid march as the drop time? Or YOU do? Isn't it usually starting to thaw bu by this time!? Mid march! I am up north and it's usually 50 degrees! Next week spring starts OFFICIALLY! Your saying where the deer were hanging out is under water?? Which theoretically means there was a ton of snow in there. Why were they hanging out in the deepest snow possible? Where do ya live musky? I have no interest to go this year as it is march already and I have my own spots to hit. But I'd LOVE to come in late January or early February to prove your mid march theory wrong. That's the only time I'd come there. And you should have no problem, because I won't find anything anyways right?

    Muskybuck. Since its ruined, care if I take a walk around? Youve gotta be crazy to believe there were no bucks dropping before this melt started!!! Trail cams can show racked bucks in march ANYWHERE. I could set up a camera here And catch some pics too however we have been picking up fresh bone since January, a couple in December. It's the same everywhere You will have early droppers , normal droppers, and late droppers. What you claim, eveey buck on your 40 drops the second week in march year in and year out is outrageous! Not only is it almost impossible, but it'd be soooo easy. Experts around the country have tried to come up with theories as to when and why buck drop, and there is still no conclusive answer. I would be willing to bet there has been more than shed laying on your property since January. Like I said just because trail cams show antlers and you don't find any in January or February doesn't mean they aren't there!

    Congrats to tonka bass and his buddy on their awards at the classic this weekend. He edged me out for second place in the single side non typical shed contest. First place was 111 inches tonka was second and I ended up third with my 98 7/8 inch side. HUGE bones this year. Any other year and we both could have won it. No losers though when you have sheds of that caliber!

    Hey bud, I haven't gone anywhere. I've always been following the thread. I decided I wasn't posting any of my finds anymore during shed season. Too much competition here to have people seeing what and when I'm picking things up. I'm sure ya understand. I plan on an annual year end post to tell the story of what went on. It's been slow, slower than normal, but let's face it, it was a craZy winter. Totally different patterns than I've ever seen. But I'm still optimistic. As far as getting the usual numbers that is. There's a few guys in here, yourself included, that I would be more than happy to stay in contact with through private message or email. Good luck during the upcoming melt!

    I'm patiently waiting as well! I sent him a private message too, I don't think he liked being called out on them. No response. Anyways , I know the details, and it's not a recent find. 15 years ago. Local though. That picture he posted was taken at the sports show in Duluth. I have the same exact picture in my phone. Great shed , but false story

    HEY NONTEEPICAL... Im sorry but i gotta call you out on that quote above. That shed was not found anytime recently. Unless 15 years ago is considered recent! I know who owns that shed, along with its 87 inch mate. Where you getting your info?

    Hey Tonka, are you entering them as a set at the classic? Pretty sure youd win, last year the biggest non typ set was 179 with no spread, your 10 inches above that. or are you gonna enter them individually as singles? I was just reading up on the show details. Its 20 dollars per shed as singles, or its 25 dollars if you have a set. so itd be 40 bucks if you entered them as singles. Just curious

    yah thats sooo a moose. Ive seen plenty of em like that. if ya found the other side though, it would be a great idea to put em on a whitetail head.... most ppl wouldnt know the difference, and see a giant 6 point!

    Hey Jumbo, I emailed you the pics of those sheds...The resemblence to me is uncanny! The ones i have are bigger than the one you picked up, but theres definite bloodlines there. I scored the bigger one at 93 5/8 and the smaller one at about 82. Id really like to see all of them together sometime for comparison. Then I can tell ya exactly where they were picked up and when. Im stuck at 28 sheds right now, but im hopin for 4 to 5 more hikes. Hopefully I can produce a few more! And I think I speak for everyone on this thread that we wanna see pictures of the dead head 14 point with the drops!!
