Shed hunting?

Wondering if there are any other shed hunters out there in TacomaWorld. I like to get out over the winter just to get in the fresh air. Anyone else into it?

Been hunting deer for about 35 years. Do not really hunt for sheds but in my travels in the woods have found only 3 sheds in my life. Found the first one coyote hunting in March years ago, the other two scouting early fall . Farther north where the deer yard up in the winter is where most sheds are found.

From Wikipedia:

SHED HUNTING:
Gathering shed antlers or "sheds" attracts dedicated practitioners who refer to it colloquially as shed hunting, bone picking or sometimes clinting (a term that originated in Cascade, Idaho, but is now more widely used). In the United States, the middle of December to the middle of February is considered shed hunting season, when deer, elk, and moose begin to shed. Heavy snowfall during this time can make clinting very difficult. In Canada shed hunting usually occurs after the snow melts. Sheds often accumulate in one area, and these areas are often kept secret by those who hunt there.[citation needed]
In the United States sheds fetch $1–$100.[citation needed]

My dad has found a few in his time out in the woods, Ive never found any. From what Ive learned is that mice, hogs, and other animals will eat the sheds. I guess they have protein in them

generally rodents will get them before the people do, and I actually give my dog most of the antlers off my deer, he loves them as something to chew on. so I assume coyotes/wolves would do the same thing.

Did this growing up in Southern Colorado, never knew there was a name for it thought it was just collecting antlers. In the right market you can a pretty good price for deer and elk antlers. Use to collect them while gathering cows and riding fences, stash them in the brush somewhere then come pick them up later in the truck. Thought I was exceptionally lucky when I would find a matching pair of antlers, that came off the same buck or bull.

I take my son out and it's basically hiking and if we find some..great!
It's gotten pretty competitive around here.
Been doing it for 4 seasons now.

I guess I should have explained it better in the op, thanks KTP for the definition.

It is a challenge to find them before smaller animals chew them up and is a great way to stay in shape over the winter. I also use it to watch the horn growth from year to year. It's also good practice with the camera as you never know what you'll see when you're out.

A week's finds from a few years ago

A bull I was after but couldn't catch up to in season


Some deer sheds from last year



Some as they layed




And sometimes you see something you didn't expect to see
