Well, no sheds, but found this item. Very strange. The handle was just sticking out a little, the rest was under dirt and leaves. No rust, or blood. Going to toss it in the trash.

Went out today looking on lease they still have alot of snow.  Giving it a couple more weeks.  But good news they are going to talk with me to the farmer who rents there field and see if he will let me rent his 25 acre woods.  Figured it wouldnt hurt to have some extra help trying to get the piece.  I already have rights to retrieve any game talked to him last year.

G mans post finding 4 lit my fire . Walked 3 1/2 hours today,zero sheds, I usually find 1 for each 1 1/2 of walking . I hit fields they feed in and cross in the winter ,easy to glass this time of year too . Walked a trail behind a swamp that had idk 100 rubs along it, nothing .

Saving my spot for later as no one but myself is allowed there ,today I hit other spots ,with many many stands, it’s a fine line between beating those guys out and when deer drop their head gear .

Ya it’s a bit early for me but my cams showed many bucks had dropped , oh well good thing I’m retired and can go any day . I may put a big effort in this year, most years I only go 10-12 hours a year .

I may tack it up in the barn next to the few sheds I have found around the property.

Finally found a shed. It was right in the middle of my walking trail, easy to spot. Walked 2 more hours with nothing to show for it except a bunch of old beer bottles. Stamped 1956 on the bottom.

Went for a quick check of a very local spot this morning - nothing doing.

Heading to SUNY Albany to watch my niece play softball for Colgate.

Finally got out for a few hours in between rain showers to change some camera cards and look around for sheds. Found one the mice got to already, and then found a matched set laying next to each other. First time finding a set.

Found two deer kill sites and a turkey kill site.

Found a bear den too. Black tufts of hair on those broken roots.

Productive hike in 60 degree temps!

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has let it be known that it would like to hear from residents that may know about or happen upon an active bear den in the state.

DEC Acting Commissioner Basil Seggos was upbeat when he said, "There is great value in having resident participation for this type of wildlife research. DEC's wildlife biologists use public feedback from these studies as a guidance measure for future wildlife management and planning efforts. I encourage anyone that encounters a bear den to follow our safety instructions and reach out to their local DEC office for reporting"

I don't know if its active or not. I'll move a camera over there and see what's up.
