Your welcome. These are the first sheds I have ever found. Also the first time I have been out in the woods this late in the year, due to this is the first year witha bow for me. The last snow was christmas eve I think. I was in Iowa and when I got home that night I had to shovel the sidewalks. Its raining here now though.

Yep, rain all over today. Too bad it isn't going to just stop! I think it's going to uncover some sheds and then the snow will cover em right back up again!

Went over to my land near Cumberland,WI to bowhunt this afternoon. I checked one of my cameras that I had up and decided to take a quick look for sheds. I found this little 4pt within 75 yards of my bowstand. I have pictures of this deer after he dropped the left side.

After seeing that a lot of people were already picking up antlers this season, I decided to go for a ride and see what I could find. 8 o'clock this morning I saw this one 10 feet off the road alongside a heavy deer trail. I also saw about 50 does and 3 shed bucks in a field. Time to get in shape for the season I guess!

Made a try at two of our favorite spots today and came up with 4 antlers. Not the big ones, but all trophies when you put on the miles! Found a matching set off a yearling, only to have a third one pop out when I picked them up that was frozen to one of the set. You can just see part of the beam in the photo. Up to 5 for the year!

Awesome! I haven't tried this year but last year and the year before I put on many many miles on foot in areas where I always see deer. Yet to find one! The only interesting find I found while out shed hunting was this!

I went out after dark with a flashlight tonight and checked some bedding areas I have had good success in the past. Found this nice 4 point side about 9:30 tonight. Shed #6 for the year!

haha nice cow

Texas Longhorn. There is a guy near me that has a bunch. The weird part is I found it on state park land. Just the head. No body. It was pretty fresh. In order to get into the state park this thing had to go through a lot of barb wire.

I am thinking one of the few cougars running around drug it out into the state park land. Way to heavy for a coyote to drag this thing. Wish I could have found the carcass to see if it was a natural death or something killed it.

Sadly I have a care. But ive looked online. If I bleach that skull, polish those horns I can sell it for a pretty good penny online.

Seen some smaller sized spreads go for right around 500$

      Got about 20 nice bass today. Most on TRD lure and Ned head. Also a pike and a walleye. Water back up to 60 F. These were the last two Raint2019-9-16B.mp4

      I have not hunted it in about 5 years but there were plenty of people running outboards, you have to be logical and not try and run where you can't. I wouldn't do it in the dark the first time. The majority of places I hunted on swan and had good luck were via canoe where I would paddle then drag it across a bog then paddle more. There are places where no motor outboard, longtail or surface drive can't get to, find these places there will be birds but it takes a lot of work

      It’s been jig-minnow for me. Boated 32 walleye today. Lots of nice fish up to 17”. But no slot fish. Caught everything in 22’ to 30’. East end.

      Except that basically no one targets Tullibees to any extent.   The issue with walleye is that they are targeted at a level that the fish cannot tolerate no matter the weather or global climate change.   The natives taking their share has increased the pressure, and the various invasive species have made them less able to withstand the pressure, especially considering the political and economic issues.   If the tribal quota was zero as it was for many years, it would be politically easier to maintain harvest by anglers at a sustainable level.

      Went out Saturday morning. Couldn't get to my stands due to the monsoon season we are having, so I grabbed a chair and sat on the ground in some willows. Had a doe with a fawn come out shortly after shooting time. Then a small 1 year old buck. Then a bachelor group of 3 small 1 year old bucks. All the deer at one point were within 20 yards of me while sitting on the ground. Didn't kill anything but it was a good time.

      Heading up Wednesday. For non-leadcore fisherman (walleyes) has it fully transitioned to a minnow bite or or some of you still using crawlers?   Thanks
