Miles For A Small Pile

11 Mar

The basic definition of shed hunting is walking back and forth looking for antlers that have fallen from bucks that are living in the area. But for me, it’s much more than that. It’s a time to get out and celebrate Mother Nature’s divorce from Old Man Winter. A time to breath fresh air and stretch my legs. There’s nothing better than getting your heart rate up and working up a good lather. It makes me feel young again. That’s not even the best part. The best part is being able to share these experiences with my deer-crazed brothers. It’s amazing how something so simple can bring so much enjoyment. Walking.

Although I wish we found more antlers, I think I enjoyed talking deer strategy with the guys just as much as the shed hunt itself. That, and making fun of each other with almost every breath that came out our mouths. Miles were walked, hearty meals were eaten, and good laughs were had by all.

I’m not sure if it’s because i’m tired or feeling lazy, but I think I’ll let the pictures do the rest…

After 15 hours of walking here is what we walked away with.

 

What happens when two people find the same shed at the time… you fight for it.

This picture has nothing to do with shed hunting. It does have something to do with bees though.
