When we needed to swing the line to make a bend or if one side got slowed down by difficult terrain (remember those kudzu washes) the wingman would tell the point man by radio to slow down until the line was straight again. It didn’t take long for shed hunting with dogs to take off. Top dog trainers across the country are breeding, and developing single-pursuit dogs that are shed hunting machines, although just about any pup with retrieving instinct can be taught to seek out cast antlers. Dog training expert Tom Dokken created the North American Shed Hunting Dog Association (NASHDA) to fill a void he saw in the sporting dog world and its popularity is reason enough to justify its existence. Spend a single day afield with a shed dog and you’ll understand why they are becoming so popular in deer hunting circles and why anyone obsessed with spotting rows of tines poking through the snowpack would covet a canine trained in the ways of antlers.
For most of us here on Wired To Hunt, shed hunting is a regular part of our year round deer hunting season. Many of us whitetail hunters have a strange fascination with antlers, to put it simply, they’re just cool!
There are a million different tips and tricks out there for finding sheds, but if I had to drill down to the three most crucial concepts – they would be the three below. Once you have proper expectations though, it’s time to start making the most of whatever shed hunting property you have access to.
If I had to drill down to two core areas to search, it would be bedding areas and feeding areas. The above three tips are core to shed hunting success, but there are a lot more good ideas and tips out there to help you find more sheds.

According to the record books kept by the North American Shed Hunters Club, the antlers listed below are the world record single sheds in the Typical and Non-Typical categories.
Antlers are fascinating, and the science of how they eventually fall off every year is a topic that is pretty interesting on top of that. Shed hunting is a blast, but having a trained dog to help you makes it even more fun, and you’ll find more bone to boot! Now it's time to start scouting for the upcoming 2012 New Mexico big game hunting season that is coming upon us fast.


Hunts Still Available for 2012 For those of you who didna€™t draw a tag and might want to utilize the option of a landowner permit, please give me a call.
I hunt in West TN and am always wanting to learn about this area more and what type of deer others are growing! For most folks, February kicks off the annual shed season and we here at Wired To Hunt want to make sure that you are armed with all the information you need to find a boatload of bone this spring.
But for those that maybe haven’t quite jumped off the deep end yet, I wanted to provide a short introduction.
Deer lose their antlers every winter, and antler obsessed hunters hit the woods every spring to find those sheds before squirrels and other critters them up.
I’d argue there are two basic reasons, those being to collect antlers for personal reasons, and then to collect antlers for educational reasons. Most obviously, if you find a shed off a buck, you have strong proof that said buck made it through the hunting season.
If you know where the top late winter bedding and feeding areas are, dedicate the majority of your time searching these zones. Below are two articles I’ve written detailing the training of my own shed dog, as well as several other articles from outside sources sharing best practices. Text, photos, and video may not be used without written permission of the copyright holder(s). To get started, all you need is a good pair of boots, a set of binoculars and a few properties to walk.
If you’re shed hunting a property you also deer hunt, this gives you an opportunity to determine what bucks will be available to hunt in the coming fall. You’ll soon find the rush of spotting that shiny white antler to be pretty addicting! Deer spend the majority of their time bedding or feeding during the artic winter months, so it only makes sense that this is where the most sheds are found. Even in the best states and the best farms, it’s still going to require a lot of work and effort to come across what sheds there are. Below you’ll find links to several of our most comprehensive shed hunting articles, filled to the brim with information that will help you find more sheds.


Good luck out there this spring, and if you find some nice antlers be sure to post pictures and details of where you found them on the Wired To Hunt Facebook Page! I've seen them clean up a full grown horse in under 4 weeks.Also consider that hawks and eagles and crows can strip what remaining meat is left on the bone.
We’re covering the basics, the advanced tips, the science and the tools for shed hunting. Other folks enjoy antlers for other reasons, such as using them in building projects or decorations. Finding sheds can also help you learn about a certain bucks whereabouts and patterns of  movement.
If you’re shed hunting on public land in Michigan, you need to have different expectations than if you were shed hunting on a private farm in Iowa. Specifically, in The Ultimate Shed Hunting Resource, we have compiled shed hunting tips from some of the top whitetail experts such as Bill Winke, The Drury’s, Kandy Kisky, Whitetail Properties and many more!
As for when it died, my guess would be 2010 since it doesn't look like anything has chewed on the antlers and doesn't appear chalky.Nice find!
Below we’ve got an incredibly comprehensive set of resources devoted to all things shed hunting. Thats valuable information that can translate to putting together the puzzle that can lead to hunting success. Don’t take your eyes off the ground, and constantly scan back and forth, forward and backward. If you want to learn everythng there is to know about shed hunting, this is the place to start.
