Talk anything related to Shed Hunting
When I am targeting an area that I know has sheds I use my GPS and walk grids with spacing of anywhere from 20 to 50 feet depending on visibility and number of trees and bushes in my line of sight. I try to use natural landmarks like a fence or road to keep me in the general area and then go back and forth until I have hit the whole area. I also walk slowly looking left and right and sometimes backwards. I mark the sheds I find on the GPS and it creates patterns from year to year. Of course, sheds can fall anywhere, but there do seem to be some concentrated areas that produce from year to year. Even when I hit an area hard I sometimes find white sheds that I missed before.
I agree there. It's like I walk right by them and don't see them. I have found 13 white sheds this year that I should've found last year because I know I walked that area and must have passed right by it. Brown is hard to see in that kind of cover until it's white. I can't believe it's March 8th and I saw 5 bucks still packing both sides. I didn't disturb them, let them be but it's just amazing the difference in the kind of winter has on the time they drop.
