But shed hunting is an active pursuit. In my experience, most kids want to be doing something, and of course the biggest part of finding sheds is simply walking and looking. Pretty easy concept for a young mind to wrap around. When I started my kids out, I went to a little food plot, verified there were a couple sheds there, and waited for a nice afternoon. We "hunted" for only about 20 minutes before Brooke and Bailey found the two antlers. They spent the rest of the time examining deer tracks (and poop), bird nests, raccoon hair, a dead mouse, and…well, you get the picture. We hit that little field every spring now.
