After reading about tips on shed hunting I was compelled to try it myself. I never went before, although I have found a couple of antler sheds while hiking and putting up treestands. Although, I never went for the sole purpose of hunting sheds.
I learned from the article and from the old timers in the area I live in (La Crosse, WI) that I should look in heavily populated areas and south facing slopes where the deer like to bed during the day. The first time I went out I got permission to walk on a property that was full of deer, and a ton of snow. I didn't find one that day, and I still haven't found one. Are there any tips, or tricks to do to help see those thing better. I have a goal of finding five this year. I want to make hunting knives and use deer antlers as handles.
