The way some make it sound meat hunters only go to the woods to fill the frezzer then stay home when its full lol.Non trophy hunters would be a better discription of of folks who are not consumed by antler size.Id saythey spend as much time in the woods as any other hunter Imo lol


i would have to disagree. if horns holds hold no value to the hunter, why would he stomp around in a cold woods to pick them up.

Where have you seen anyone post "Horns Have No Value" to any hunter ??Just because someone may not be Obsessed with horns and horn size does not mean they find no value in them.I hunt for many things including sheds because I like to hunt and enjoy the searching and finding part very much. The same reason some people hunt arrow heads,metal detect,small game hunt ,it is also the reason many people fish. The searching and finding is just as much fun as the end result be it on the table or the wall.

Trophy Eating. Quality Deer Eating. Antlers are nice, too. So is whiskey.

Never gone out specifically for sheds but when I'm walking through the woods anywhere I'm always looking around for whatever I may find

I hunt for meat almost exclusively, but typically pass on some deer if I'm having a decent season and seeing more than usual. Last year was not really one of those years. My private land spot stunk. On public land I passed on a few baby bucks, but eventually ended up killing a 4-point after not seeing any does for an abnormally long time.

I've never been to the woods for the sole reason of looking for sheds. I could only dream of having the free time to do stuff like that. I have chores and other junk that I've been ignoring for MONTHS that I'm just now taking care of.

That said, I will certainly look for sheds when I have an opportunity to do late season squirrel or rabbit hunting. So far, I think I've found 2 in 10 years...lol

A shed is neat, but unless it was just something super rare, I don't get that excited about it. My dad and I found a really nice one last year that had been chewed on some. I'd say it came from a 130+" deer, which is bigger than any I've ever killed.

I don't understand why there has to be this such a line in the sand between trophy hunting and meat hunting. I think you can do both.
