How to Shed Hunt the Big Woods
When I first started shed hunting, it honestly seemed like it was going to be an impossible task. The only thing I really knew was that I needed to get into a deer yard (or wintering area).

Me and Roger linked up at the local convenience store where we had met up with Joe Kruse the day before to start the morning. Joe was not there this morning though as he had harvested a nice eight pointer the morning before. We both gave a quick thumbs up out the window and started breaking the trai...
