A little early for...sheds?

Recommended Posts

A guy at our camp was out hunting on the 22nd and picked this up. It's obviously fresh, but it sure seems early. I did chase one BIG bull out of another area that had paddles bigger than this. Can't wait to go back and look for them!

Anyone else find sheds this early?

Wow! Nice shed! Ive heard of a few moose paddles being scooped up now since about the 12th of Nov. Its early but it happens.... obviously! smile

I imagine it will be around Christmas time and some whitetail sheds will start to show up. Last year I found a set on the 27th.

I cant wait!

Sheds are crazy, I've been after them since 1983 and in my area they shed extremely late, not all but most it seems. I had 5 bucks last Valentines day in our corn field all with full racks. I start looking around March 15th till the end of March. The majority in my area shed in March, not sure why, it's just over 25 years that is the norm. Seems like though the tougher the winter the earlier I start to see them or notice bucks in our field without them. Pretty cool to see a moose shed, thanks for sharing.

    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
