    Nice! Did you look much or did you just stumble across it? I'll start looking on my way into the stand when archery season starts up again on the 20th! :)

    I walked for over 3 hours. It was more of a scouting trip to begin with because I'm checking a 700 acres area that I've never hunted but I plan to hunt this fall. Found a ridgeline just full of scrapes any bedding area right next to it. I will post the picture it laying on the ground in the bedding area. Look like a cattle yard.

    Awesome! My wife finally talked me into buying another dog. I took the passing of my last lab very hard. We are looking at silver Labradors this go around. I am sure it would make a fine shed dog. :)

    Here are some pics of the dogs we are looking at if you haven't ever seen a silver lab before.

    Gotta love labs! I plan to get one sometime in the next year (yellow) and will without a doubt be a waterfowl dog but also a shed dog. Numerous times yesterday I thought how great it would be to have a dog with while walking.

    Yah, I keep thinking the same. I have the added benefit this time of working from home so I can spend even more time with the new pup then the last one. My last dog would flush and retrieve in the field and was a excellent blind retriever over decoys. I would think training a dog to find sheds would be easier then the other two!

    I would sure think so! To me, all that matters in a good dog is the ability to listen. The rest they can either pick up or not but if they listen to commands that goes a long ways. I could send it off to get trained etc., but it's more the companionship for me.

    Well I have done it now. Kids overheard my wife and I talking about a dog. They have already started a list of names and we haven't even bought one yet. Lucy I think I am in trouble! I will say they are pretty creative. Here is what they came up with so far.

    Ghost
    Sliver
    Blade
    Titan
    Argenta (RJ) (latin word for silver?)
    Sterling

    I may have to have the guys on the forum help if we get one. LOL!

    Good luck! I don't have any plans of getting one anytime soon and already have a name picked out too!

    Don't listen to Art. :p Nothing wrong with a Chevy! My first brand new truck was a Dodge right out of high school. Worst decision I ever made. A true lemon in every way!!! Both cosmetically and mechanically. That and my dads Fords were always in the shop. I was converted to Chevys when I married my wife and have never looked back!

    It never made me a difference what I or anyone else ever drives. I always found it laughable about the diehard guys fussing over such things. They all have their pluses and minuses. :)

    Well guys... What are you guys seeing on your cams? Time to start looking for sheds or are you going to give it another couple weeks?
