For shedhunting basics, it starts with knowing your herd in the area you are hunting. Basically, focus on bedding areas and food sources and the areas that they utilize in between. I always know the food source and the best bedding before I go in. Lots of poop = lots of deer activity.
Great post, spot on. I don’t find as many as Moondoondude does every year but typically find between 30-50 per year.
The only thing I can think to add is that if I was told that I could only shed hunt 1 particular type of habitat the rest of my life, hands down I would choose Overgrown/CRP fields....regardless of terrain. I cover loads of ground each spring all over SE and NW Ohio looking for sheds. 2 completely different types of terrain and more often than not different winter weather yet between the 2 parts of the state, overgrown/CRP fields typically hold the most sheds.
