Greetings, My favorite way to go shed hunting especially this time of year is to accompany my Akita {oscar-mike} into the lower mountains and hike the ridges and canyons. there is still snow and a lot of mud so it makes tracking Elk very easy. I get onto some fresh BIG tracks =Bull tracks and follow them keeping an eye out while watching my K-9's behavior. I usually find fresh sheds on the sunny south facing sides of canyons. Or on the flat tops and benches above the canyons . A wonderful way to spend a early spring day.
Just remember to bring a lg duffle bag and some big dog treats !!!

I found another one. Nothing great,but it is stil a shed. Just a curved horn,nopoints. This was where I feed the deer. Lucky my dog did not find it!!! That would make the 3rd one. Wed I would like to follow the trails. Never had no luck in past years. But maybe this is the year. Been doing good this year.

I mentioned in another thread about seeing a deer with one horn!! Quite a sight it is. I was doing my nightly feeding and thought I only saw one horn,but I could not get the light on him before he took off. I had today off so I went and fed them,hoping he would come out and he did.
First time I find a shed,first time I ever seen a deer with one horn.
here is a spike elk with one up and one down
probably got bent when in Velvet.

Now that is different.
Just to be clear,one horn had fell off and one horn was still on. I had been watching him and each night I would tell him to drop his horns where I was feeding him to show some appreciation.  :D  Than I saw him with one horn. This was in reply#14. I cut down a maple tree and I thought I would get the horn and I did. I figured he would get into the limbs and knock the horn off.

I've probably got a dozen or so I've collected over the years. I made my daughter a necklace out of a point one year for jul. Carved some designs in it. I don't think she cared. Oh, well. I had fun making it. I need to dig that one up, and make something for myself. I pick them up with the intention of cutting them apart and making things, but I can't bring myself to cut them. They're too interesting as they are.

How right you are. I gave my step son some of my Fathers deer horns that he had shot. He keeps them on the table and people will come over and just pick them up and look at them. He gets a lot of enjoyment out of them. More than I would. I am glad they went to a good home. He also has a trapping tag of my Fathers too. Made out of copper and my Father's name is stamped in the copper.

Yea,but where do the deer go during hunting season? As I posted I have a stepson that hunts this area. I've had 6 hunters here at one time. They might and I say might hear something,but none have ever fired a shot.  :( I guess they need to hunt with a tractor under them.  :D The deer will stop coming to feed,when the snow is gone.
I just enjoy seeing them. The deer was here long before I built a house in their backyard. 
I have only started to see bucks in the last 2 years. He always ask me about horns. Never seen any until last summer. I know the bucks are here,but don't see them. I've been feeding them for 18 years and this is the first time I found a shed close by. Brenda found one across the road in the field years ago.

@Magicman,that's what snow is for in Nov. ;) Stepson came up with only a few inches of snow on the ground. I think he was alone. Well don't matter because he was alone in the woods. :o  He crissed crossed my land and then headed for Gordon hill. Came back and said,I don't know where the deer are,but I know where they are not,around here. He left and went hunting someplace else. There is a couple good miles on that hill. I said he brings 5 others at time. Friends and thier Fathers and than more friends of the Fathers and so. He always calls and ask. The stepson brings his Father up here to hunt too. And these guys are hunters. We usually have Thanksgiving dinner and yes the wife's ex is here too and that's all they talk about.  One year there was 4 tree stands on my land. A good piece of land is hard to come by now. Yes there are hunting spots but having someone walk by once every 15 minutes gets old quick. Not that way here. I do have some land posted and some will ask,but I say no,I want to keep it for my family. :) Than there are the deer scraps,where they dig the ground up. These guys cover some ground at times. It's not all sitting in a stand all day either. I hear the stories and they wonder where they go too. They have the good GPS that tells them where they are,the lay of the land and all that good stuff.
@Peter Drouin, my swamp is not that big,but a couple hundred feet wide by 1500 feet long can hide some deer. I've been in that thing a few times. Make sure I can walk a straight line and the sun is out. ;)  
If them DanG deer have enough smarts to stand still a person could walk within 50 feet and not see one. Sometimes I am on the tractor and see them run off in the woods. I know the spot they run off too and I have to really look to see them.

Many times I have walked my property and swore that there could not be a deer anywhere on it.  Late in the evening out pops deer.  :o

No sheds yet but did find a complete skeleton last week just inside woodline next to young plantation.  8 pt. from last season barely legal (13" inside spread).

Found another one!!! Well pumpkin found it.  ;D  Wife's dog.She was running in front of the tractor. All at once she jerks around and starts to smell. Just another animal trail I thought,she does that a lot in front of me. This time she really lingered. She knows not to stop in front of the tractor. I hollered to her and she stays off. But I thought it was strange,like she tried to bite at something before she rook off, I stopped and there it was. It was on the graveled woods road. I had run over it many times. I broke off one of the points. Was not a big horn,just a small one,so no big points to go through the tire. I walked through there a few time,so I might of saw a big one.
That is number 5 that I have found.

Only 50 at a time. Most years,well the last 17 years,I never saw a buck,well with horns,on my land. I saw one a few years ago and saw a couple last summer,than when I was feeding there was 4-5 with horns. I would suspect that is why I am finding the sheds.
