Hey guys and gals,
I was wondering if all you experienced shed hunters could give a newbie like me some tips on shed hunting. I don't have a dog and have only gone a few times. I was lucky enough to find one but that's it.
I've heard the tree line that meets the edges of a field is a good place to look, also persimmon patches. Any truth to these?
Any help would be hugely appreciated.
God bless,
Iz

I've had the best luck spending hours and walking miles in bedding and feeding areas. Fence crossings seem to be a good spot to look too. I'm sure you'll get plenty of advise here, there are some pretty dedicated shed hunters on the board.

Walk and walk and walk! Really though they could be just anywhere. Last spring when shed hunting I parked the truck in a different place than normal due to the high creek water and about 50 yards in, I found my first ever matched set. Normally, I would never have walked through that area.

Time and a good pair of boots! I have found them on field edges, middle of fields, crp fields, edge or woods, in the woods, everywhere except hovering off the ground!

I went 2 years of putting in lots of time before finding my first one. I personally think it has a little bit to do with training your eyes to see the little things.

Of course what do I know........shedhead has a christmas tree made out of sheds! Someday!
