It’s been a tough year for shed hunting.
T he ground has been covered in snow since Thanksgiving. Normally February is prime time for finding whitetail sheds, but most of the areas I hunt are either inaccessible or covered in snow. As I wait for the spring weather to thaw the snow I took a look back my trail-camera pictures from last summer.
This is my list of the sheds I hoping to stumble upon when the ground is finally bare.
There are two reasons a shed lands on my list. Some of these bucks are just plain cool. This year I had several bucks that were sporting “drooping” tines. I’m not sure what caused this. Most of these bucks weren’t very old bucks but I would love to get my hands on all that unique bone.
The rest of the bucks on the list are bucks that I’ve been watching for a few years and I just want to know they survived hunting season and the winter. I’ve been following several of these bucks for years and I am just hoping they will still be out there to chase next year.
