Deer Antler Sheds: Look at These Cool Finds

Shed Hunting Guest Blog #8 by Lon Sherman Wow, great weather to look for sheds. The thermometer in the truck said 75, but the weatherman said it was officially 70. Whatever, it was a glorious day to be out and looking for sheds! My son, Lance, and I hit it hard. We spent a half-day...

Deer Antler Sheds: Found One Today!

Shed Hunting Guest Blog #2 by Lon Sherman Greetings, fellow shed heads! I covered a lot of ground today. Found a small spike and a very small half of an assumed 6-point. Feet are aching, but it was a productive day. I also found a large, dead buck that had already shed his antlers....

Deer Antler Sheds: Diary of a Diehard

Shed Hunting Guest Blog #1 by Lon Sherman Whitetail deer hunting has been my passion for more than 50 years. However, I am now equally as addicted to searching for deer antler sheds. Why?
