Here's How To Figure Out When To Start Shed Hunting

Here's How To Figure Out When To Start Shed Hunting

By Alex Comstock

It’s mid to late January. You can’t go sit in the stand anymore because deer season is over. But you still want to be out doing something related to deer. This time of year, deer enthusiasts across the country start hitting the timber in search of something else and that’s shed antlers. Shed hunting is something a lot of us look forward to doing every winter/spring, but when should you start? You don’t want to be out there too late. Things happen such as rodents getting a hold of them, or maybe others shed hunting on the property you do first. But in the same breath, you don’t want to start too early either. The last thing you want to do is push deer out of an area before they shed and then subsequently not have any antlers to look for. So when do you start? Here’s what I do.

Late Rut Hunting Strategies with Don Higgins

Late Rut Hunting Strategies with Don Higgins

By Alex Comstock 

Often times, by this juncture of the season it can be easy to start getting "worn out" from the rut. It seems counterintuitive given the fact that most whitetail hunters look forward to the rut all year, but after a few all day sits early in the month, it can take a lot of energy out of a person. If you haven't been successful yet hunting the rut this year, don't worry, because some of the best hunting could still be ahead of you. One of the best deer hunters out there, Don Higgins, has a great track record harvesting bucks during the back half of the rut, and below you can read about how he hunts this time of the year.

Hunting in The Rain Effectively

By Alex Comstock

There are certain weather conditions that just seem to scream “Go Hunting!”. A cold front passes through, everyone knows to be in a tree. High pressure days, I’d say most people agree that movement could be better than normal. But one weather condition that I don’t think enough people take advantage of is precipitation. Rain can be a great weather condition to hunt in if you can withstand being “miserable”. There are a few reasons that rain can present unique advantages to hunting, and below I’ll cover those, along with when to not hunt in the rain.
