A day spent outside is always a good day but a day spent outside while shed hunting is a really good day! Yesterday was one of those really good days. I drove a few hours away and hiked up to a new spot that I digital scouted using Google Earth and it turned out to be a good area for shed antlers.
My mission was to pick up some fresh brown elk antlers but it quickly turned into a mule deer shed hunt. Even though I walked seven miles with over 1,100 feet of elevation gain, the elk eluded me, for the most part. I do recognize that it is still a bit early for elk sheds but I was hoping to find one or two based on recent sightings of bulls in the area.
I’ve been at this shed antler hunting game for two seasons now and as you will see from the video, I’m still learning the ropes. If you need a little advice yourself, make sure to read: 4 “New-School” Tips For The Beginner Colorado Shed Hunter as well as Colorado Elk Shed Hunting Tips. Based on the video below, maybe I need to get better at taking my own advice?
**I apologize for the out of focus shots and bad editing that make up the majority of this video. Apparently, I still have a long way to go in learning how to use a camera and editing software, but nonetheless, enjoy!
