What is Shed Hunting?

Members of the deer family are the only animals that grow and discard body parts on an annual basis. Male deer, elk and moose (and both male and female caribou) grow antlers on their heads beginning in the spring. By summer the antlers are fully grown. In fall, bucks and bulls use their antlers to fight rival males and attract mates. In winter or early spring, the antlers are shed and new antlers begin to grow. These bony treasures are beautiful and highly coveted by some folks. Best of all, they are free for the taking … if you can find them. Each winter and spring, thousands of people take to the fields and forests to look for these naturally shed antlers. For many, looking for sheds is like a treasure hunt. Although walking through the woods and staring at the ground may seem like a silly way to spend your time, the thrill of finding one of these bony appendages keeps people coming back for more.

Joe Shead Outdoors

Subscribe to my YouTube channel, Joe Shead Outdoors, and join me on my outdoor adventures as I look for shed antlers, reel in fish or pursue ducks, deer and other game. I focus heavily on shed hunting, traveling in search of antlers from North American big game, and you're invited to ride along as I chase fish and hunt for a variety of game, too. Learn valuable tips (along with some terrible jokes) and enjoy the outdoor life!
