SHED HUNTING THREAD - PICs INCLUDED

At first glance I thought it was a nontypical, but it was just a small matchset.

I took a walk this afternoon and came up with my 10th of the season, and my biggest so far. I rough guessed it at around 70 inches. Nice to get a big one now and then!

Very nice lotws and jk! I went out today for a little while but didn't find anything. Hopefully the snow isn't too deep so I can get out this week after work!

Same here, I bumped into two 8 pointers yesterday and they had both sides. I chased them for a little while to see if anything would drop but no luck.

In the high winds yesterday they almost ran right into me, I just happened to hear a crash, turned around and there was a doe and two bucks 20 feet away, a fun little encounter for sure. Wish I had a camera on me at the time.

Nice sheds guys.

I too saw an 8pt still holding on Saturday in the Metro. I'm really pumped about the snow, for a second there it was looking like we could actually make it out in the metro and find something....

This has been a pretty slow season for me so far, I'm glad some of you guys are finding bone. Good luck to all.

I wish. I'm sure some of you have heard of the "Excelsior" buck from this past summer. Well these are the sheds - I heard close to 90" a piece.

Yeah it is the new mn state record and 6th biggest set in the world. 175 0/8 with one side at 90 3/8 and the other at 89 5\8. The duluth news tribune has the story. Insane deer!!!

I checked my cams 2 and a half weeks ago. All were wearing antlers. Some were ever sparring. Cool stuff.

Is this odd?

its not odd.

IMO, 20% of bucks shed in December, 50% in January, 20% in February and 10% in March.

there's a lot of factors, but when its all said and done these are the percents i have come up with in my observations.

WOW! HT thats awesome! I walked another 2.5 miles last night and found some good areas. Still waiting on the snow to get gone though. The -20 degrees we had this morning isnt helping the cause though!

      Does scented make a difference? How about some different ones for walleyes?

      @popriveter  Thanks man,  Glad I could get you pumped for the season. It was exciting to get out that early this year. Really sucks this warm weather came in and going set us back though. We were on track for a really nice ice season too. I was out in the Metro on 4-5" for few days last week before it got warm. Ice is still there just looks nasty now. Really bummed. You may have to drive north for some decent ice. Either way fingers crossed for cold snap soon. Be safe and goodluck this season! 
    • Bryan P
      @Bucketcastle lol...Thanks Man. There was a lot of ice checking before this video was made too. Pretty much 4-5" everywhere I drilled.

      Some plastics will last thru many crappies. Some maybe one. 😁 Slug bugs. Mayflies. Wishbones. Wedgees
    • CigarGuy
      Please show some pics of good crappie plastics. Good thing is one scoop of minnows will stay alive forever in the winter.

      Tremendous buck @MJ1657

      Yep. Leave the bait home and jiggle jiggle jiggle. 🐟🐟🐟
    • Kettle
      Looks to be super unpredictable still, I heard a few brave souls walking out of Warrod but Arnesens just posted online that they had ice but now gone with the wind. I would imagine it's a few weeks out as it's a huge body of water
    • Rick
      Anyone out ice fishing the bays?
    • Rick
      I built confidence in plastics by going without bait. Amazing what you learn to do when plastics and artificials are your only options.
