Shed Hunting 2020

Recommended Posts

Found my first set of the season this afternoon. Unfortunately, they are several years old. I believe they were grown in 2015. I had this buck on cam in 2016. He was killed that fall and I actually mounted him...

Wife got home early and I  must of had a look on my face after being stuck at home for 6 days now with no work or projects to do.  So she sent me out for a hike.  No sheds did find a hip bone to a cow about 3/4 mile into the woods.  Did find a couple great spots for bow hunting but I have no idea how I'm gonna sneak into them.  Nice to get out.

I have not been over to visit my parents (both in their 80's) since the Covid-19 stuff started.   My mom mentioned on the phone last night that dad found a big antler near the back of a clover field behind their house (4 points on it).  He has been trying to find the other side, with no success so far.    I have been concerned about the fate of a big 8-point, that I saw a few times over there during archery season, and now I can rest a bit easier.   It appears that he made it thru gun season.   

I did not see any bucks over there during gun season, after I "accidentally" killed the resident old doe on opening day.  I had seen several bucks over there earlier, all having smaller or busted-up racks, except for the big 8, which never gave me a good shot opportunity.   I was a bit concerned that a big, busted-rack buck that a neighbor killed over there might have been him, but dad's antler find proves otherwise.  

I am guessing that he will be 4.5 this year, which is a bit out of my league, but has me looking forward to the coming season.   I had killed 3.5 year old bucks over there in 2017, and 2018, but missed my chance last year.   I did manage to get one at home with my crossbow, but the bodies (and chest girth) are a lot bigger on the ones over at my folks place, on average.
