    I have had years where I have walked 10-15 miles in areas where I have found sheds before and found nothing. Then walk into an area where I have never found anything and found 5 or 6 over the course of a mile. My dad had hours and hours in two years ago with nothing and then found 8 the first 30 minutes of a hunt. You just never know.

    That is the fun of it. Some years are better than others. Having a dog that can locate them sure helps!

    Understanding the movements of bucks by tracking year round helps immensely. Plus, you get to see the forest wake up, go to sleep, and all the animals in it!

    Found a nice matching set 2nd weekend of turkey season last Spring. I think it was from the year before due to a little wear and tear and being partially under leaves. I never find sheds so I was excited to say the least.

    I seen 21 deer in a field together last night. 8 bucks total. All but one had both sides and he was packing a half. I was glad to see that one of them was a buck that I let walk first weekend of bow season. He is gonna be a dandy this year.

    My cameras and corn are still running. Off two properties, I've only had one buck drop a side. Had a spike drop his right side. Other then that, all my bucks are still wearing their crowns. I'll chime in as a check cams, next check will be this coming Wednesday.

    Ever try to walk 5 miles a day in Knott County? That's why I don't find many sheds.

    My buddy found a fresh, good size shed while we were rabbit hunting this weekend on public land.

    IMG_4284.JPG I went out this past Saturday, the 27th and found nothing. I hiked for about 2 1/2 hours and covered all my normal areas that I typically find them in. I saw multiple bucks still carrying both sides but I am very encouraged by the amount of sign I saw. Also, found a ton of large trees that have been rubbed this past season. Weird, but I saw a few trees that have been freshly rubbed as well.
