Finding sheds?

Postby charlie 01 » Mon Apr 04, 2011 1:13 am

I can't believe I'm not seeing anything of people finding sheds. You wait any longer and the squirrels will have them destroyed. Is anyone even looking?

Yes but there are already two different threads at least:

Have never seriously hunted sheds, but this past March, while putting out a couple of mineral blocks, I accidently found a recently shed prong-antler. Hoping the other side might be in the general area, I found myself spending a hour or so roaming around trying to locate the mate. Unfortunately, never found the other side, but next year, probably around February sometime, think I take a few serious strolls through the woods, maybe finding some interesting sheds. A fellow could get hooked on this sort of thing, I suppose.
It isn't what happens to us, it is how we deal with it, that matters most.

I just got a black lab puppy. Any suggestion on how to train her to find sheds?
