No dogs, just good old fashioned foot work. I have seen where quite a few guys use there dogs to find sheds, but I also seen where a guy from Colorado this year received a ticket and is taking it to court for using his dogs shed hunting.
It would be interestin to know about that shed hunter that had the dog out. That along if there were any animals around or if he was in some kind of an area that restricted dogs. I know that Utah the last couple of years have required for the shed hunters to pass an online course and to keep a copy of the certificate with them when they are hunting sheds during the spring. They even have dates when you can be out to prevent people harassing the wildlife. I read one case where a person chased and tried to get a nice bull to drop them.
When hunting whitetails there are many different languages being spoken afield that I key on when outdoors. All these little creatures living around whitetails have something to tell us if we are willing to listen.
My favorite tattletales of the outdoors are a handful of little birds that live in my state of Ohio. Maybe yours too. A tip for the upcoming season.
There are Blue Jays, Cardinals, Chickadees, Killdeer, and Sparrows that all have language...
