Deer sheds II

10 posts in this topic

Please excuse the dumb question, but is it too late to find a shed in April? Doesn't some animals eat them?

Thoughts?

Thanks.

Im guessing 170 ish, excluding the spread, nice find. I like the " elsewhere" comment too. I think i might have to stop saying where all of mine are found, i will have too much competition next year!!

So, you guys think it is still worthwhile to look for them?

When is it not? What animals eat them and by when -- anyone know?

Yea its still worth looking some bucks don't even drop theres till sometime in april also not every shed has or will be found so you can find them anytime of the year its just easier now with out the new groth coming up yet. Now to the animals that naww on them squirles,rabbits,porqupines,mice,other deer theres to many to list and most of the time they only naww on them not eat the whole thing .

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
