SHED HUNTING THREAD - PICs INCLUDED

Recommended Posts

TonkaBass

I saw 2 140 class holding both side in the metro last Saturday. They were with a shed buck. This snow is burying everything right now though. If anyone finds one, post a pic. My guess is it will be one tine sticking up an inch.

Thanks to everyone for showing and telling. Sure am getting pumped to get out more...if only the dang snow would quit! Only thing I find good about the snow is that it makes some of my lazy competition quit early or slows them down!!

I was hitting a spot today and came up with one nice 4 point side. smile I have been pretty lazy on getting out lately... This was my 1st walk since I found the nice one on the 3rd, but #7 is now in the bag so hopefully I will get back on track now! 6 left sides and only one right, so I know some areas that should have a half dozen antlers at least on the ground!

Nice set found 30 yds apart

He found #6 today as we were leaving our shed hunting spot he saw it laying along the road in plain sight in a field road opening. Amazing nobody picked it up as it had to have been there all day I would think as it was getting dark when we left.

Finally got another chance to get out and look for more antlers this past friday and also today. Last friday walked some standing corn and found a 5pt side buried deep in the snow. Today i walked three different places must have put on 3 miles or more. Finally on the last spot I spotted a deer leg sticking out of the snow went over to investigate and after about 10-15 minutes of diggin in the snow I spotted a nose and took a step back and I stepped right on its antler. It was a basket 8pt. Having best year to date even with the snow being knee to thigh high in most spots.

I was watching a deer hunting show, the guy had shot a really nice buck. While he was showing off the rack from different angles, both of the antlers came off at the same time. It would been a 160-170 class buck, how its just sheds. cry

Walked for 2 miles yesterday on some public in Iowa. Snow was shin to knee deep. Only found a dead doe and dead button buck..... Oh ya and a live possum in a corn field. We are suppose to get another 4-7 inches of snow not good for looking for antlers.

Went for 3 hours between classes today in a nice cedar swamp. lots of sign but no antlers. I think at this point any time spent in the woods is basically scouting for sheds

I haven't been down to our property since hunting season, and am thinking about coming down there this weekend for a walk out in the fields and woods with the warmer weather.

How deep is the snow in the Rochester area? Would I need showshoes, or could I get by without them?

Has anyone had any luck finding racks in that area or are they buried?

Thank you for your help!

The areas I walked briefly near Roch were pretty miserable. I could walk right on top for 10 steps, then would cave in and be mid thigh. I only went an hour or so and bailed out with no luck. I recommend snow shoes if you plan to leave the trails at all.

      Agreed, the eyes didn’t look healthy and didn’t have much spunk, even for walleyes.  We caught some off the dock fishing leeches under floats in about 8-9 fow.   Lots of boats out!  I don’t visit Mille Lacs much so I don’t know if the memorial crowd was more than usual but I have a feeling it wasn’t.  Except for the rain showers that moved through we could count anywhere from 45 -100 boats from the dock at any given time.

      My brother was up there on Sunday with the Nephew and had a 70 fish day. He said most were 18 to 21 inches with a few 22 23's and 24's mixed in. Think they also got a few 25 and 26ers. Leech's lindy rigging off Agate reef and Half moon deep side 21 ft plus.

      Did some Crappie fishing in the area over the weekend the bite was on. Grandson had a blast. Wife also had a good day fishing for once. They were some very nice sized fish. Plain hook and minnow and ice fishing teardrop lures in green did the trick with minnow. One day plain hook ruled next day green jigs did.

      Some nice Catfish down further towards Pokegama also.

      In my 15+ years of ownership, I have never seen boat traffic like we had in Black Bay over the week/weekend. During the week there were 5-10 boats and each day while this weekend there were 20-30 boats from morning-to-night hunting crappies. There was no hot spot, just boats everywhere.    When I finally went home last night after 1.5 weeks up, I noted that someone backed their trailer into the dock at The Landing. The rubber bumper was hanging off. It must have been a hoot to sit around watching all of the boats going in and out.

      No one has any advice?
    • SkunkedAgain
      We were accidentally finding them on beds near shore. Tried to avoid pulling them off of course.

      So, I gave up on eyes this weekend.  Figured it was time for a change.     I fished for Crappie, they were much more willing to bite.  They are mostly all shallow, 2-4'.  I caught them on minnows and tube jig.  I just scanned the shallows looking for schools.     Funny thing, I was fishing the Edgeton Rd Bridge, caught a solid 9" gill, then next cast something picked up my tube, I set the hook, I see a bright white belly turn, and the jig popped out.  I guess the issue with a tiny jig and a ultra light rod.  I think it was a 24'ish  walleye.  Next cast I stuck a 14" walleye.  Then two dudes in bass boats came chugging along at about 6mph with their motor trimmed to high hell and stirred everything up.  Thought that was nice of them.     So, I also did see a large grouping of blue gill beds on the main sand flat on Horseshoe.  Only a few bites.  I could see fish in them with SI.  Also tried weed edges for gill in about 9-10', and just dinks.  Threw a crawler at the shore, and started hammering 8-9" gills.     So fish can be caught, just have to try and figure out what they want.  With more consistent weather should come a better bite.

      Hi all. I am currently at Rush Lake near Perham at Four Seaons Resort. We’ve been here three days and have caught basically nothing. Can anyone give me some advice on walleyes here? Where to go and good baits for this lake? I’ll take any advice on any type of fish you might experience with on this lake. Never been here before.....
    • ozzie
      We decided to not hit up the chain and go to another lake in the area...we found a few eyes in the 13-15 foot range on Saturday mid morning and then came back in the evening and landed one more.  Went back out the next morning and didn't find anything!  Just when we thought we found a bite...will be back up this weekend for golfing and maybe a session or 2 fishing.
