Combo shed hunting and letting beagles run rabbits and then chasing after beagles. One more shed, number 3 of the season for me. It fell upside down and the tines were buried in the mud. I put on about 3 miles today. By the way, it's cold. Sunny but cold up here today 35° with brisk west wind 15-20+ mph. Wind chills are in the lower 20s. It was a good day to cruise back and forth down deer trails through bedding areas rather than hunting fields. 57° this afternoon at my in-laws in Marietta, Ohio. Dang.

My mind is blown. My two most recent sheds are very old, one has been tucked in a fencerow for nearly 5 years, the other, over 2 years. Trail camera photos proves this..

EDIT: the date on the first photo was wrong, the neighboring hunter sent me the photo. It was from 2017. Still a pretty old shed

This buck was killed in the fall of 2019 as a 5 year old. Just found his 4 year old left shed today! Incredible!

While I was not specifically shed hunting yesterday, I was keeping a lookout for sheds when I went to round up the beagles. I had turned them loose while I was pruning an apple tree and as often happens in March, a rabbit (buck no doubt) ran big. They ended up 0.4 miles away on my neighbor's where I hunted back in February. I did find Mylar balloon number 14 of the season on my neighbor's so there is that. 😂😂

Found these two today while checking some ladder stands and clearing some brush by one of my permanent tower blinds.

had to go back through my photos and try to find this deer cuz I know about every buck on my family farm. Found this pic from last may. This would me roughly 60 yards from where I found the shed today. Only two pics I had of this deer last year. Looks very young too. Ladies and gentlemen welcome Casper the friendly ghost of Toker Road.
