Recommended Posts

Some must still be on the deer. Had one in the back yard yesterday here in rochester. Still had both antlers. Nothing to get excited over, only a fork horn.

RincRat,

I would agree that is not the same deer keep looking. You got a good chance at two matched sets!!

The one on the top photo left side and the next photo could be a match the one on the right top is not the same deer for sure

There are more bucks out there than most people realize good luck

My bad rincrat... I thought you meant the 1st pic was a match. Like swamp said, they look like a match to me.

Went down to our property on Sunday. Didn't find any, but the neighbor found a bunch on his property to the bucks we know about. Still alot of snow in one of our good areas. But maybe it was also because we saw people's footprints...

Neighbor has cameras up year round and said 2 of the biggest bucks dropped in December. He also got a trespasser on camera. This guy put his hood up when he saw the first camera, but didn't see the second one so got him on camera, showed his picture around town and found out who was. Went and got all the sheds back from him. The guy even picked up the ones the neighbor had put out for his kids to find. Pathetic.

Had another guy parked on the access road to the field with all his gear on. No reason for anyone to stop there. When he asked him what he was doing, he said smoking a cigarette. Pathetic again.

Luckily he drives by our and his property twice a day.

there are plenty of big deer roaming the cities and the burbs that live long and grow big.....I would bet there are more than the 2 8 pointers in your buddies area in bloomington

Ya this snow is getting pretty old. I put on 11 miles yesterday and only found one little 3 pt side. Theres still over a foot in most areas around here so unless they have 14" tines and are laying tines up they cant be seen

I hadn't been out for awhile, but decided to check a local city park Friday afternoon. The DNR had been in burning off cedar trees on the hillside. I ended up finding two small ones that sat out a year. Nothing fresh.

Just looked over all my sheds I have at home this weekend. All but one are right sides. I have two match sets. I have looked before for shed but only the last couple years have I really made some better attempts to get out and look.

Even the big antler I found this winter is a right. I"m still looking for the other side of that. Seen one deer this weekend and still had both antlers.

I think I have a just around 20 sheds that do not match. 19 rights and 1 left. Hoping to find more in NE and SD turkey hunting.

ok so i have a question, i have tis prime spot where the deer walk at the bottom of this hill on a beaten path (by the deer) along a river, and now its flooding, when the river goes down do you think any sheds will be washed under or mean covered by leave and clutter after the river goes down?

Vexilarman--- We had that same issue in ND last year. Some spots were completely under water and logs and sticks and junk got moved around and piled up. We never found sheds in those areas. Other areas had mild flooding and we found sheds there. They will more than likely be covered in a fine silt but that washes off. If the water doesnt move to quick through that area you should be ok.

I decided to hit a spot yesterday afternoon and found 4 sheds in 2 hours walking. They sure stand out now with the snow mostly off!

I had another awesome day of shed hunting today! Ended up with 5 antlers between 3:30 and 6pm tonight. All single sides. Two real nice ones. One was sitting in a deer bed on a main trail in a small city park that usually is walked heavily every spring. I could see it from 50 yards away while walking out the top of the hill so don't know how it was missed. Missed getting a photo of one of them. Makes 21 for the season so far.

I found my biggest shed buck skull yet on Monday, and took it over to show a friend. He in turn comes out with this huge skull that drawfs the one I found by quite a bit. I took a couple of photos so you could see just how big this thing was.

Salamanders are the bomb smile I used to find them in my basement all the time, but not the last couple of years. I still find them occasionally outside around the place.

Lot's of good looking sheds being found.

I made it out yesterday for a short hike and found 2. My camera was on the fritz, so some pics did not turn out. I was very proud of my dog because she found her first shed. Most of the sheds I see first, but this was really her first solo shed find. I was standing there talking to my wife on the phone, and I saw her rooting around about 30 yards away; all of sudden she comes up with a nice little yearling 4pt. She got about 3 dog treat after that one!

      looks like there will be a change in sunfish limits effective march 1. article in todays st cloud times said there looking to reduce the sunfish limit on 9 area lakes. those lakes happen to make up the horseshoe chain system. looks like the new limit will go from 20 to 10.   now this is just my opinion but i didnt hear any issues with the panfish population  until a few years after they introduced the catfish to that system.   either way i'm ok with the change!

      love all the pictures

      Are you looking for one for hardwater or openwater

      Whoa, bringing this one back from the dead.   I use Rockys.  The specific model are Cornstalkers.  They have 500 grams of insulation.  I use mine as all-purpose boots, walking for pheasants/grouse and sitting for deer/turkeys.  The first set I had lasted for about 10 years before they started to fall apart.  I'm on my second pair now, year 3 coming up.  I had a pair of Redhead Comfort Airs from Bass Pro for 2 seasons and they started to leak and my feet always got wet.  Highly suggest avoiding the Redhead brand of boots.

      I like Danner. These boots tick all the right factors that go into delivering a great boot experience, more here https://bootsgeek.com/danner-quarry-review/

      Well, just wrapped up my last day in Grand Marais. All the smaller, shallow lakes are locked up with ice, or will be after tonight. Lots of snow up the trail, but getting around on back roads wasn’t a problem. I stopped and fished most of the trout lakes around the gunflint and arrowhead trails...the ones that weren’t frozen over anyway. My dad didn’t see a single grouse...I saw one at the start of the arrowhead. I didn’t hear a single gunshot while I was out fishing. Saw 1 moose, 1 bear, a few deer, foxes were everywhere! And even saw a fisher run across the road. Saw just about every animal print you can think of in the snow. Still a few diving ducks around, snow buntings and crossbills everywhere. And finally seen a gray jay! Despite the cold and snow, it really wasn’t that bad out. Was a different perspective fishing all the lakes in waders, as opposed to being in a boat.

      Thanks for stopping in Darren. I will always consider you a great friend. You always gave and then gave some more.   You are appreciated.

      A huge shout out to Borch who gave some really good pointers on running the raps in our lake.   This fall my dad spent more days fishing from my boat and actually was begging me to go. Dont know if we will be able to do it again but made some really good memories. 
    • The Chemist
      And i did this. I wished i could learn not to have this happen. Having to go to the ER was odd with the whole covid thing.
