sheds over meat
I prefer shed hunting more than shooting a buck. I tend to shoot a doe early and then get a late muzzleloader tag. I've been hunting deer with the muzzy now for 10 yrs and have only bagged 2 bucks. Why, because I enjoy the scenery of deer walking within feet of me and I like to see how big the antlers get. I spend hours and more hrs of shed hunting come spring and now I have a helpful hand. I got a yellow lab pup this past february and have now trained him for the scent of sheds. We practice constantly and he has a gr8 nose. Most of my success does lie within pine trees, fence lines and open picked corn fields.
