I’M IN LOWER MICHIGAN MYSELF BROTHER, DOWN HERE IN MONROE COUNTY
Is there any way to add a pic with a comment?
I’ve seen bucks with horns two weeks into March in Missouri
shed tips from these flatlanders on farms are so precious
Here in Scotland uk I come across sheds in the forests
Yep the only two I’ve ever found were at a creek Crossing here and flat in Mississippi… I think I’ll go look for more
Thanks for another great video Jeff! Yesterday was the last day of our season here in NJ. I saw nearly 100 deer throughout the day. I was surprised to see multiple bucks that had both antlers. I even saw fresh scrapes??? Do you think the scrapes for rutting purposes or just social? Obviously the buck to doe ratio is way off!
Brother send me some of the snow here TN. We’ve had so much rain it’s pitiful. The ground here is rotten it has no bottom in certain places. You get a vehicle off the road more than likely it’s stuck. Great video brother. I’m running behind on videos. I passed the conceal carry class.
Good video but IMO the fence/creek crossing shed tip is a myth—I’ve hiked a lot of miles and found a lot of sheds and I have never found one at a crossing. Could just be unlucky!
Never realy went shed hunting now there is about 2 feet of snow. Will the sheds sink into the snow where i can’t see them
What a knowledgable man. Super educational on all his videos.
Hello, my family bought just over 30 acres and I have found These sheds so far:
3 by 3 dead-head (old, good quality) – on my land
Spike elk shed (fresh, great quality) – on my friends land
4 point deer shed (fresh, great quality) – on my friends land
6 point deer shed (really old, decent quality) – on my land
4 point deer shed (old, good quality) on my land
I’m hoping to get 10 by the end of the year (I count dead-heads as two antlers)
I hope this can give you some inspiration!
I saw 4 buck still holding on 2/19??
What about if I live in North Florida where there’s alot of Squirrels and rodents?
Guys I live in Missouri, the earliest I have found sheds were Christmas Eve of decent size. As a person who checks trail cameras, talks to my deer hunting friends and direct observation while driving or winter scouting, it is not unusual at all to see the more dominant males with head gear on throughout March. Yesterday in fact, I saw a spike with it’s antlers still on. For myself, I am missing a lot of sheds if check too early. Nearing the end of March is a safe bet.
Great video gave me some ideas where to look if it ever stops raining here. I need some snow here it calms my nerves.
SW WI, snowing now around 6", 51 deer out feeding last eve. in beans, brassicas, and corn.
12 bucks with both sets, a few with singles, a few totally dropped,
but the majority still have both sides, including bucks of all ages. Bob
Bucks in my area usually hold em until the end of May-mid march
Speaking of wind. Lol
Haha, so basically you can find shed outside? Lol
some good info.
ppl get antsy here and are startin earlier and earlier every year. have i found sheds in january… yes just by luck trapping or something. but my peak here is end of feb. and beginning of march.
Where he is standing looks familiar. Northern michigan by chance?
I spend lots of time hiking in Massachusetts – I see deer all the time but I’ve never had any luck with sheds. Hopefully this video will point me in the right direction.
So the best place to find sheds is……..anyplace deer are sleeping, walking, or eating lol. I find a lot of sheds and none of these videos helped. The biggest tip a person can give is find out where the deer are grouped up late season and search every inch of ground.
Good video, info!
24"-30" inches of snow on the ground here in the Adirondacks, I’m giving it a couple more weeks before I hit the big wood spots. Water open all winter is a great place to concentrate near, here in the Mts
Note that He doesn’t shed hunt on his own properties. He doesn’t really say why, but I bet it’s because it does more harm than good. Why you would want to take a chance and blow bucks out of their feeding and bedding areas just to find a shed or two is beyond me. At least that’s what I got from this video.
Great video! Can never find a shed, year after year. Maybe I can get one this year!
Iv found a 14 point shed while riding four wheelers i was in the back it was in the road idk how no one seen it or didnt pop a tire
What part of LOWER MICHIGAN?
AN DO YOU THINK IT’S TO LATE TO LOOK NOW – MARCH 11TH???? AN ALSO,WHAT ABOUT SHED HUNTING TRAIN TRACKS????
1.)How far away, does the sheds happen, away from any public roads?
2.) I have a way of following power lines/near treeline? Is there any luck in look here as well
Great info. What is your educational background? I would love to do what you do.
I just went out for the first time yesterday and found one of my target bucks right side! He’s a stud of a 4×4 and I’m guessing the side I found is close to 70"s
there is no 100% in the white tail world can’t stress that enough but I find the more mature bucks will shed first an the younger ones will hold longer not sure if it’s because they are more run down or because there antlers are typically heavier and drop sooner still have some younger bucks a running around here that still have half rack or both antlers
I had my best year ever this year. So far 20 sheds and 5 of the are mid 60s.Considering the last 4 years I have only found 3
Solar patterns are changing and so are weather patterns. It would seem plausible that certain areas with changing weather patterns that shedding could vary. Great videos.
