    I know we're not quite to 2021 yet but thought I would get this thread started because I know i'm not the only one getting the itch to get out there!


    1) Who's all got some bigger trips planned for this year?
    2) Has there been any talk of a shed contest for 2021?
    3) Personal goals for this year?


    I personally have a couple trips that i'm hoping to make this spring. 1 is to get down to west central/southwest Iowa to walk some public and out to the black hills area. My uncle is currently building in Lead and am really hoping to get out there and find my first mule deer and or elk shed. If anyone has any tips for these areas, especially the Black Hills, I am all ears!

    Life has sure gotten in the way the last couple of years with work getting busier and having 2 young kids, but my personal goal this year is 15 sheds and add Wisconsin to my list of states I have found sheds in; if I can find time to get out there that is.

    Good luck to everyone this coming shed season!

    As much as I love to shed hunt, I haven’t even shot a deer with my bow yet this year. Sad to think it’s almost here already

    I’m still trying to punch my NR tag in Ohio! I do plan on some shed hunting/scouting new land and possibly shed hunting a couple potential leases.

    Found 3 old ones already just while hunting. One was a really nice 6 pt side on our hunting lease that was just laying out in the open for at least a year, maybe 2. Not sure how no one spotted it. 20201127_132152.jpg

    Was going to do a little walk on some public this weekend but talking 5-9" of snow so that probably won't happen.
