    I may run feeders and cameras today and take some soil tests. If so, I should add a few to my count. #fingerscrossed

    Looks like we're probably in the lead so far once our score card is updated.

    Woohoo! Dang, our team score is rolling now. Good job guys!
    I didn't get out today like I thought I would. I got started cleaning up one of my old work trucks that has been parked for a long time and that's all I did all day besides a trip to town for cleaning supplies. Truck was bad enough when I parked it but mice had taken up residency in it and made it far worse. Damn mice...
    It's starting to look halfway respectable again. Luckily enough it has the old vinyl floor mat in it so I think I can get all the mouse piss smell out of it, lol. Now it just needs a new battery and some vacuum hoses repaired. I think it's time to sell some old stuff.

    2 more today. One small one and a GIANT nontypical with a double main beam and 3 drop tines! Coolest shed Ive ever found. #1 antler I was looking for on this property.

    That makes 20 for me

    Crazy as it sounds, I haven't touched my good spots yet. Im taking some vacation days in march to hit it pretty hard. Half of what ive found so far has been on public land

    Do you have to search pretty hard to find antlers on public land? there are some public spots around here but I haven't event thought about walking them. What do you look for in a public land shed property?

    I shed hunt public land differently than private. I look for where people (other shed hunters) arent. A lot of the traditional bedding and feeding areas get hit hard here. I found boot tracks in January. So I look for places deer will go to escape human pressure. Usually I walk all the way to the back of a property, bypassing areas that "look good," and work my way back towards truck. The 2 yesterday were in public. I found both within 20 yds of each other on a high bluff overlooking a huge swath of timber where any deer could see people coming up walking trails.

    When you shed hunt so you cover a lot of ground and just slow down when there is more fresh sign or do you take your time always

    I put in for a half day vacation for March 17th headed to SD! I'm bringing my brothers dog too so hopefully we can get some good training in in the next 3 weeks!

    Team 1 looks like they will be hard to beat, but we are the only team that appears to stand a chance!

    I just got off the phone with the land owner in SD, they said most guys find about 12 a day, but those with a trained dog and willing to work hard can find about 20 a day. I will be hunting for two days out there so hopefully I have some good luck and we can really boost our score! If I really like it I also wouldn't be afraid to go back for another weekend in April.
