2018 Shed Thread

Recommended Posts

There are some states that you can only keep sheds from private land, shed hunting on public land is ILLEGAL, also a few states don't allow you to possess "deadhead" (finds with antlers still attached). Definitely some crazy laws out there. I'm not sure if in NY you are allowed to cut racks off of road killed deer, something tells me you probably aren't supposed to, but I know I have on a few occasions.

Tis the season to drive around with saws and muck boots in my trunk. I kind of hope a copper lights me up when I’m sawing through a skull. Just curious how that will play out.
Last year I had a mess of PD draw on me when shed hunting PUBLIC land that borders private Westchester homes. They were all confused about my searching the woods for sheds. I told them all about how hunting is all about BIG RACKS (FSW is my friend!) and since I can’t kill them (not skilled enough!) I have to pick them up.
They were so pissed I wasn’t a real bad guy!

If you find a shed tomorrow, I’ll try for my first NY shed on Sunday.

Kinda shows the true story when hunters even have to go after big racks even when they cant kill the deer that carried them.  

It's all about the bone. Always has and Always will.

The snow is mostly melted here finally with this nice warm up, but I won't be able to get out till next week. I will keep an eye on this thread and bet it starts to light up soon.

I looked for sheds yesterday when I was checking my trail cams . It was rough walking on thick and thin ice as well as some muddy areas . I trudged through some thickets and didn't find any . I went through some downed cat tails near a pond and found part of a skull from a 4 point . Not many bones by it .

Wow impressive. But with 7” of snow coming, I guess my first ever NY shed find will have to wait. Where’d you find those- a bedding area or just randomly walking around?

The “paddle” one was in a bed off a trail under some down trees(this year’s shed). The longer crooked one was right off a run that I was walking.(last year’s I guess)

I was going to predict a find for you. Seems like first timers whether golfing, hunting, fishing m, CURLING often do the best to hook you in...nicely done-looks like somebody was gnawing on the tip a bit
