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.
"Useful, fast read. Many tips you won’t see in most of the shed hunting articles online or in magazines. Read with a highlighter."
"A quick read with practical tips relevant to white tails. Explains a lot of regional nuances to shed hunting - highly recommend."
"I’ve had both the book and DVD now for several years. Would highly recommend them for shed hunters of all levels of experience!"
In this DVD, Joe takes you on a journey through the late-winter and spring forests, looking for white-tailed deer antlers entirely on public land.
Watch Joe Shead and Dan Hess pick up nearly 300 whitetail, muley and elk sheds in Montana and Idaho and see two world-class Western shed collections.
