    Any shed hunters?

    Any shed hunters on here? Have you seen most drop yet? I want to go look but dont want to bump them out of place. I would ask on the iowa deer site but I dont remember my login.

    Re: Any shed hunters?

    I had a group of 4 deer cross the road in front of me on my way home from work last night. 3 of them were 6-8 point bucks, two of which had shed half their antlers. Almost parked the car on side of the road and went looking.

    Re: Any shed hunters?

    I would say a majority have dropped or will drop within the next week or two. The bigger problem in most areas is snow cover. I usually wait to look until the snow has mostly melted off.

    Re: Any shed hunters?

    Snow is going to make it tough. I looked a bit last weekend and didn't find any. Checked all of the trail cameras and I would say 1/3rd had fallen as of last weekend. That is just a guess for South Central Iowa where my farm is. I would check trails and food sources if you want to get out. Save the prime bedding areas for a few more weeks.

    You mean they aren't ?

    Re: Any shed hunters?

    I thought they were hunting by waiting in a shed somewhere until a deer came by... Figured the dog liked it cuz it was warm... No lie. Figured it out a little later in the thread. Who knew.

    Re: Any shed hunters?

    I'm sure there are some out there -- hopefully this snow takes a big hit this weekend.

    Re: Any shed hunters?

    By the hoof prints in the snow, I think my deer must have had a shedding party. Hopefully the sheds are not in the field. Sheds and tractor tires not a good combination.

    Shed hunting is where you spot a nice shed or barn and shoot it. If you are a bad shot, they say you couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

    Re: Any shed hunters?

    but why would you shoot the shed? you could just enjoy it and let it be on its way. Whats with you people and shooting everything.
