Shed hunting - post your pictures!



Log in to see fewer ads
If any of you shed hunt, would love to see some of your pictures.
Seems it's becoming quite a popular activity.

Interested to see what others are finding (post your pictures) and hear what you do with them.

Here's a few shots from my last month hunting:








Needless to say I wasn't able to bring this one home. Must have shed when the tree was little and it grew around the antlers. No idea how many years this has been there, but certainly a long time.

Key to shed hunting is identifying where the animals concentrate after hunting season. Many public lands that didn't allow hunting.
For us (Colorado) it's late January - late March when they drop.
Usually south side of mountains as they are warmer in the winter months and where they bed down. Many drop side-by-side as they sleep. Also along main trails.
Gotta get them before the squirrels start eating them up!

About 30 +/- years ago someone at gun shows was selling a series of pictures taken of a bull elk walking along a trail as he shed both antlers. Should have bought them. Really cool.

If you own property or have permission to do so on private property you can build a shed trap. It is merely a frame similar to a teepee frame. The material used is usually rebar. A food block is placed in the center. When the horns are getting ready to drop the bumping on the rebar can be just enough. I mentioned private property because it is unlawful to feed game on state land in some states.

Clarify title.....

.....my first thought on reading the headline was some guy with an air rifle or 22 bird shot loads on the trail of mice or rats in his outbuildings.

Second thought was someone wanting to buy an outbuilding for lawnmower storage, other tool/vehicle storage, etc.

Never crossed my mind what the OP was really talking about.


Don't confuse us old timers!!!!
