Shed Hunting - In Search of Lost Bone (featured article)
I've never really hunted for sheds before, but I think I'll give it a try this year. Sounds like a good excuse to get outside, survey the hunting areas and maybe even discover some mature bucks I never knew about in my area.
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
