I start end of January and call for yotes and shed hunt and scout all at the same time. I do this until 3D season/turkey season opens.

I didnt know you had that much brain capacity that you could multi task like that Matt... Wow, I am impressed.[8D]

Ps. Do you want an ice pack for that burn?

I usually do a little bit in February and March. The big push for my brother, friends and myself is in April. During our 5 days of shed hunting we normally find around 300.

Last spring my wife, brother, friend and myself were out for 1 hr 45 minutes and found 54.

On a typical day in the spring we walk 10-12 miles.

Here are a few from that short trip.....

Thanks. Thats a picture of my wife and a friend of ours. Most of the sheds we find have been out there awhile. I would say about 50% of them are dropped within 2 years of us finding them.

Here's a pic of 3 fresh ones laying within 6 feet of each other. Hopefully you can see the 2 next to each other in the background.

I start looking around late Feb. until turkey season in April, but in a sence i look all year long. Im allways keeping an eye out for them even when im hunting, and occasionaly i find one left from last season that survived the rodents. But it seems that May and April are the hottest times.

Dan thats an amazing outing for one time out. Im jelous, that would take me 4 seasons to find that many and i log alot of miles.
