Miles per shed

Discussion in 'Shed Hunting' started by bywayofthearrow, Mar 18, 2017.

  1. Curious how many miles everyone is putting in for each shed find? I'm at 24 miles in the last month and still waiting on the first one. Most years I find roughly 1 every 10 miles. My best day was 6 in 4 miles. I'm hoping for a few more hikes before greenup. Not finding them in food or beds. Seeing a lot of fresh sign and game which is all that really matters. 3 woodcock flushes today.
     
  2. I would say one shed per hour is a good day for me. I don't track miles. I always took you for the kind of girl that wore a fit bit. :D
     

  3. Ha ha ha, we call them GIRLY MEN!!

    In all seriousness, I don't look anymore when I'm out hiking pulling stand or anything else I'll look. I only find them when I'm not looking.

    I use to spend time hunting them. Mushrooms are the same. One year I spend several days looking for both mushrooms and sheds only to come home and pull weeds in my Landscaping... 25 grays popped up in the mulch. Somewhat the Same thing has happen shed hunting.

  9. Waiting for the snow to melt. Blech! Was out with the dogs today. Field totally covered. A few bare spots, not many. Some drifts over a foot deep still. I am itching to get out and cruise over my favorite spots.

    I've found 4 this year so far but not when shed hunting but rather I was running the beagles and just looking around as I followed the dogs.

    Last year I spent 2-3 hours going through a bedding area and did not find a single one. On my walk back to the house I found 2 at the edge of a field within 5 minutes of each other. LOL
     
  10. 3 sheds just over 20 miles.. it's been a terrible year for me. Most years it's about 1 for every 2 miles..

    Scored this matching set over the weekend. Saw them from about 300 yards away, glassing the field with my binoculars
