At the Ranch – Whitetail: Shed Hunting Don’ts

March 16, 2021

Shed hunting is something I love to do in the winter and spring. There are a lot of mistakes people make when shed hunting and, in this video, I’m covering some no-no’s. The first is to not walk too fast when shed hunting. The quicker you walk, the tougher it is to spot antlers. Second, don’t get discouraged if you’re not finding antlers. Often times, I’ll go up to ten miles in between finds. If you get discouraged, your head won’t be in the game and your chances of finding antlers goes down. Next, be sure to not neglect winter scouting for shed hunting. You need to know where deer are spending their time in the winter to have any chance of finding sheds. Last, but certainly not least is to not write off spots too quick. If you walk a spot that looks great, but don’t find any antlers, don’t be afraid to come back in a week or two. Many times, I’ve walked a great looking spot, didn’t find any sheds and then came back later and then I found some bone.
