Shed Hunting: A Guide to Finding White-Tailed Deer Antlers is the first and only book fully devoted to the increasingly popular hobby of looking for naturally shed antlers from deer and other antlered game.
This how-to book covers the biology of how antlers grow and ultimately shed. More importantly, it teaches the reader where to look for shed whitetail antlers and how to find them. The book even touches on how to train your dog to find deer antlers!
The 160-page, fully illustrated book features more than 75 black-and-white photos. The book discusses the fascinating processes of antler growth and shedding. You'll also learn where to look for antlers, which areas contain bucks during late winter and early spring and how to find places with high deer populations that are off-limits to deer hunting. The book also includes information on necessary equipment, how to deal with competition from other shed hunters and what to do with your sheds, once you've found them. After reviewing the easy-to-read chapters, readers will have a basic idea of how to find antlers on their own.
The book is written by Joe Shead, a freelance outdoor writer, former managing editor of Deer & Deer Hunting magazine and a passionate shed hunter. Joe has found whitetail sheds from Alabama to Saskatchewan. His pursuits of antlers from mule deer, elk, moose and caribou have taken him across the Rockies and from northern Minnesota to Alaska's North Slope.
Shed Hunting: A Guide to Finding White-tailed Deer Antlers by Joe Shead
Joe Shead (and yes, it’s really pronounced like “shed”) is a hard-core outdoorsman and a dedicated shed hunter. Professionally, Joe is an outdoor writer and a former managing editor of Deer & Deer Hunting magazine. Today, he freelances for many outdoor publications, writing stories about hunting, fishing and of course, shed hunting. His years of shed hunting experience inspired him to write the first full-length book about the topic. Shed Hunting: A Guide to Finding White-Tailed Deer Antlers is recognized as the ultimate guide to finding whitetail sheds. He followed up his book with two DVDs: the original Go Shed Hunting DVD and the Western Shed-Venture DVD. Joe began shed hunting in his home state of Wisconsin for whitetail antlers, but his passion for shed hunting has led him across North America. He’s found whitetail sheds in several Midwestern states, mule deer sheds in the Rockies, elk antlers in Idaho and Saskatchewan, moose sheds in Alaska and Minnesota and even caribou sheds above the Arctic Circle in Alaska. Although he started out looking for whitetail sheds, these days, he spends much of his time looking for moose antlers in Minnesota.
If you want to catch a fish, you don't just start casting blindly. You fish along weeds, rocks, or other structure. It's the same with shed hunting. Once you figure out where deer feed and bed, and how they move across the landscape, finding sheds becomes much easier.
