Elk Sheds

I'm from Arizona and am planning my first shed hunt this year. Anyone know the best time to get started in my area? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

not to sure about AZ, but in Idaho we wait till they fall off......

Just kiddin dude....... I've got a trip planned next weekend to the WAHA's for an overnight shed hunt and to do a little preseason "spring bear" scouting. The weather here has been mild and most of our snow is gone so I'm optimistic.
Post your results....I'd love to see what you come up with.

I know here in Colorado, around where I live, the bigger bulls are not quite shedding yet, maybe a couple more weeks. I've seen the smaller bulls hold there antlers until the end of April, while I'm turkey hunting. Some of the big bucks have started shedding though. Good luck and good hunting!
