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.

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)
