SHED HUNTING


A GUIDE TO FINDING WHITE-TAILED DEER ANTLERS

THE BLOG

Not Even on the Radar!

February 27, 2014

I can’t remember ever seeing a winter like the one we’ve had. Deep snow before Christmas, bitter cold ever since. We’ve had more than 60 days this winter with a temperature of 0 degrees F or lower. We finally got a warmup for 3 days in late February, but that disturbance in the weather created more than a foot of new snow. Shed hunting is the farthest thing from my mind right now. It’s going to be really tough on the deer. I expect to find a lot of dead ones this spring. It’s February 27 and we’re not even getting above 0 degrees today! It’s almost March! Things are supposed to be warmer and antlers are supposed to be ripe for the picking! Sorry about the negativity, just nothing good here for shed hunting news, although I’ve had a great winter of ice fishing! Hope folks are faring better in other areas. Can’t wait till April here!

  1. It is tough! I was out the other day and the walking was so tough you couldn’t cover much ground . Snow is all crusted over and they are calling for snow,march first!! I’ll still go out but not getting my hope up.

  2. Even here in moderate D.C., it’s been cold, cold, cold (by our standards) — in the teens and a bit below. More snow expected tomorrow night, so I’ve got to hustle myself out there to see what’s to be had. Sorry for you and the deer that it’s been such a touch shedding season. As you say, April’s on its way — just a month away.

  3. Cold here too. It’s safe to say that there is no such thing as global warming. I ended up with 11 sheds this year. 2 matched sets.
