Shed Hunting in South Texas

Shed Hunting in South Texas

Shed hunting is my second favorite activity in the outdoors besides whitetail hunting.  Its time I get to spend with my boys on the ranch.  I explain it to them as the Easter egg hunt for antlers.  Shed hunting also allows me the chance to see how many big bucks never showed their face this past season and to get a tape on their antlers. Where do you look? – Any Water – Fence lines – Creeks / Drains – Protein feeders – Food crops – Game Trails Some of these are pretty obvious but why check fence lines, creeks and drains.  You want to check places where a whitetail will need to jump or exert energy.  Any jolting can shake a bucks antlers loose. Watch out for snakes while shed hunting!  Good luck and happy...

Shed Hunting

Now that the Texas Whitetail Season is over and our protein feeders are filled back up.  Whitetail bucks are starting to drop their antlers.  Hunting for sheds is one of my favorite past times during the off season.  We find most of our sheds along fence lines, protein pens, creek bottoms and around water sources.  Once you start finding sheds, get on the hunt for them before the mice and other animals find them first.  Glass food plots and walk trails, try to map out your path and cover every bit of ground you can.  This is also the time of the year when rattlesnakes come out of their den so watch your step and GOOD LUCK...
