Here is a condensed paraphrase of what to expect in this episode:
I started like most at a young age growing up in idaho still to this day its hard to explain there’s just something about hunting & fishing offers that gets my heart beating fast and my desire to be engulfed in it all!
3) When you don’t have time to scout what are some of the thing syou look for when chosing a shed hunting area? that’s a broad question with so many answers I generally have an idea about the country/state I’m in and what it has to offer for big game. A lot of guys don’t realize the similarities of hunting & shed hunting you need ample food, water, and cover and depending on state elevation comes into play.
4) Where is your starting point? Meaning when you are going into a new area that you have never been before and you only have a limited to huntfor horns where do you begin? Google Earth I am looking for elevation and good feed if its country that gets a fair amount of snow elevation is key. Country like Az is different Feed and water are king.
5) What structural and/or landscape features do you look for in a unit to focus your efforts? I look for a lot of country that has good wind breaks and natural funnels lots of rollie county at certain elevations that allow the animal to be up feeding anytime of the day with out being pressured and out of the wind but still have good cover to bed in either in the sun or shade elk & deer are different.
6) What would you suggest to someone to improve thier shed hunting success? A combination of things like scout find out where the animals are at starting in February clear tell May if there not there nothing will work. stay with in the elevation either deer or elk hang out in you will find them in all ranges but the vast majority stay in certain zones deer I like 5500-6200 Elk 6900-7500. Put down the miles and glass where you can!
