Fuin day shed hunting!

My youngest son (Arlan) and I went out yesterday looking for sheds and checking out some country I have not been in since 1988. It was great telling him stories and showing him the country my dad, brother, and I use to trap and hunt rabbits in back in the 80's before the road closures.

We seen lots of deer and found a few sheds. I also have discovered that a lot of elk have moved into this country and even seen one nice bull. All in all a wonderful day spent out in the woods with my son.

The first shed of the day (spotted by Arlan)

Arlan with some of the sheds he found including a nice fresh brown with blood on the base.

The only shed I found ! Duh

Cool man! Looks like just a few of those were from this year. You still seeing bucks with antlers?

That does sound like a fun day. I haven't been able to get out and shed hunt in a while. I think I might try to get out the 2nd weekend of my spring break and scout for turks and look for sheds.
