Thanks to Joe for focusing our attention on shed hunting, and to Ben for running this article. Most of us are beginners at shed hunting, and need all the help we can get. Joe seems to be the pioneer in this field. One of the reasons I hunt for sheds is that it's a great time to be in the deer woods, but also because every antler I see is the most fascinating thing I've ever seen.

Antlers -- When you've seen one, you want to see them all. [:D]

I spent 5 hours shed hunting yesterday and did not find one single antler, but it was still the most enjoyabe day I have had since November!
I got permission to go onto some ground where I had never been. Found lots of deer sign, saw several deer, and have high hopes of being able to hunt it in November.
