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 .

      Welcome what are you training her for waterfowl upland or both? What is her name?

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
