I am thinking they will drop up high this season due to the general lack of snow pretty much everywhere in the west. Last season they definitely dropped lower than past years. Snow line seems to have a big impact on where the sheds fall in the area I hunt. What do you guys think for your area?

My strategy is to get in shape 2 days before the season opens and then head to a spot where several ppl have already been looking since January and haul out their trash :)

They are going to be spread everywhere......not the concentration that you get when there has been good winter snow........so don't worry about going out....they will just be too spread out!!!

Ive always watched for sheds but never intentionally hunted them hard until last year. I found 20+ sheds last year, the best Ive ever done in a year.

Im pretty excited to get out this year and I set up some cameras in December hoping it could help. Has anyone benefitted from using cameras for sheds?

I know they arent going to drop in front of my cameras but I figured it could give me an idea of how many antlers I should be looking for in a certain area and maybe even when they dropped if the bulls are showing up on camera often enough.

Either way i am excited to check to check some winter pictures. Ive never left any cameras out December-March.

!!!ADDICTED!!!

I am thinking high as well. Went out scouting this past weekend and ever elk we saw were higher than normal. it is going to a bit of a tough year I would say.

I am going to sit in camp drinking beer and flying my drone. When I find one I will send gps coordinates to my kids to go pick up.


Shopping for hunting gear with the wife is like hunting with the game warden.

Get one of those new lazer shed finders.  Can locate a small spike up to 800 yds. with a little practice.  You have to hold real steady. :mellow:
