Deer Sheds!!

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone found the sheds off my 20 point I submitted pictures of? I looked there a couple days ago and found a 5 point side scoring between 50-60 about 25 yards from where I snapped the picture. I also found another 5 point side scoring about the same 2 days earlier in a different woods, not a matched set, but was very excited to find them. I have only been out 3 times this year, but now plan on being out as much as every night until the end of April in search of the Goliath. How has it been going for everyone else? Both sheds were found in the city bow hunt areas.

Yesterday I was in the woods walking the dog and found the right half of a six pointer. The snow is firm enough to walk on top of it and I followed every deer trail I saw. I found the shed next to a tree that had about 3 feet of bare ground around it. On Wednesday I found the skull of a forky. It was located about 100 feet from the road. I figured it was a road kill and the bones got scattered by a dog. About three of weeks ago I saw a 10 pointer still sporting his rack. I would imagine that most of the sheds are still buried. I was walking in the Duluth Hts area off of Arlington road near the towers.

I know that there was an 18 pointer taken in the city bowhunt near Rice Lake Rd and Pecan. I'm not sure if this was your 20 pointer. I have been looking for sheds a little as the weather warms, but not in the city. Send the link to the photo you have of the 20 pt. I'd like to see it.

The pics of the 20 point were posted on the city bow hunt forum page. he was still in velvet and was sporting a 16 point rack, but had balls of velvet at the base that looked liked they would develop into legal points for sure. So he was 16-20. Forked g-2's forked brows, and nontypicla points growing off of each main beam growing straight out to the side. And he is not theo ne shot by arlington. I have seen those pictures. I also have not seen any pics of him by hunters. He is up in the piedmont area, by exhibition drive. If someone got him, we would for sure hear about it. Also I found another shed on the 18th, so thats 3 in 4 times out. It had a 22 inch main beam, largest I have found so far, but sported only 4 points, good length and mass though. I will post picstures of them as well, but it will be a couple weeks about before i get a chance to do that. Thanks for all the shed replies!!

I found half of a nice eight pointer, and know of another full eight point trophy rack, both halves were found together near where the animal bedded down. These were found in late January when we didn't have much snow. Try as I might, I cannot find the other half of the rack. If anyone has any tips to finding sheds, I'd like to hear them.

Hope you find the 20 point buck. Good luck, like finding a really small needle in a haystack.

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
