It’s that time of year that shed heads start hitting the woods and fields to search for some bone. Throughout February we will be sharing as many tips and tricks for finding deer sheds as we can and today I’d like to start with some great advice from the guys over at Heartland Bowhunter. For all of you that don’t know, Heartland Bowhunter is in my opinion the best produced and filmed hunting show on TV today. It’s awesome, you’ve got to check it out. This being said I ran across a great post on their blog in which they recounted a very succesful recent excursion out to look for sheds. They found a bunch of nice antlers and Mike Hunsucker of the HB team was kind enough to send me some tips that allowed them to be successful in their search. So remember these tips, hit the woods and hopefully you’ll be bringing some bone back home soon.
HB Shed Hunting Tips
– Look in bedding areas and fields where the deer feed. Essentially where deer spend most of their time.
– Carry a good set of optics. This will save you a lot of leg work on sticks that look like sheds.
– Cover a lot of ground. Chances are you might walk by some smaller ones, but the more ground you cover, the more likely you are to find sheds!
