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 .

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
