      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

North American Shed Hunters Convention 2007

Recommended Posts

shedfreak

Hey everyone, I had the oppurtunity to go to Mauston, WI this past weekend for the NASHC convention. I went with Joe Shead who wrote the book on shed hunting. Also making the trip with us was Travis Mattison from Superior. He was one of the official scorers for the event. The booths and exhibits were out of this world! I took a few of my sheds to get scored thinking I had some nice finds, only to be shown up but hundreds of sheds. I actually had 3 sheds make it into the record books which was neat. There were lots of informative demonstrations and speakers. People from all over the country were there. There was also an antler/sporting goods auction the first night. Some of the biggest sheds and mounts in the world were on display.They also have a social the first night which costed 25 dollars and included your dinner, all you could drink, VERY NICE, and you were entered into the raffle in which everyone took hope a prize. I actually won a hat that ironically says shed freak on it! haha. At the end of the show today they named the top 3 winners in each shed category including single side typical, single side non typical, and matched typical and matched non typical. There was actually a time the first day where one of my sheds was in 3rd place, so I took a picture of it in front of the 3rd place trophy! A new world record single side nontypical was named this year. It was foundin saskatchewan and scored an amazing 156 4/8 inches, on just ONE SIDE!! I am including some of the pictures from the show, I hope you enjoy them. I reccomend checking out the show if you have the chance, its an annual event, and I hope to make it down as many years as I can!

Here are the pics you all want to see. There are 4 pictures of the new single side non typical white tail shed. 156 4/8 inches!! Also a few more pics from the show. One of the wall of shame, its all deer that have been poached and confiscated. It took them 4 hours to score the nontypical shed. I would not want to be the guy who had to score that! The 4 hours was not included in the time it took them to figure out what part of thye antler would be considered the main beam. The final conclusion was a 4 point typical frame with unbelievable nontypical inches!! ENJOY!!Let me know what you think!

Hey Kyle

Yeah the convention is every year. For each antler you get scored its 8 dollars for a single or 15 for a matched set. But the score is official, and if they have enough inches for the book, your automatically put into the book when its updated. Pretty cool I thought. Its held in Mauston, WI. Roughly about 4 hours from here. The pictures do none of what I saw justice. YOu will have to see it for your self. Check out the official web site. www.shedantlers.org

All the guys who run it are awesome guys, I met all of the main guys/ presidents/owners/scorers, etc. I know how to get ahold of you for next year if you want to go. Its always held in the same location. But Im planning on making it an annual trip for myself.

Man i hope you dont catch me, Im so burned out. But yeah theres alot more there than what you see in the pictures, and for sure ill be in touch about next year. Maybe we can get a few guys to all go down or whatever, ya know? Anyways, nice job on the new sheds. Ill still be out a few more times yet this year. The longer i go without finding one now though, the odds are ill hang it up for the year. It was good while it lasted.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
