TNLandowner, seeing those wild quail is more exciting than a big buck anymore. One of my goals is to once again hear that "Bob White" call on my land. It's been at least 5 years and maybe closer to 10.


I agree 100%! The quail population growth was an unplanned blessing that we didn't expect. Before planting the native grasses, we never heard quail. Now, we have 5-6 coveys thriving on the place. Our next effort will be to reduce the number of predators on the place. The Coyotes and bobcats have followed all the small game right onto the place. You can hear them howling at dusk everyday.

Good lucking shed. I also can't help but praise your dog:
Now that's an awesome shed hunting partner! Great job teaching him that skill. My Golden would likely grab the antler and run away. He hates to share...

I just found a fresh rub while looking today that still had hair stuck to it and fresh shavings on the ground. But some have dropped and some haven't, really depends on your specific area.

#7 and #8... my first matched set of the year, found em literally 1 minute after I was telling myself that a matched set was my goal for this year. Luck....

They are last year's sheds but in fairly good condition. 10 yards apart from each other.



Have not scored yet, they won't score very high, but I will score them if nobody finds a bigger set

catman, if you dont mind my asking, are you finding more sheds in open woods, in thickets, or in open fields? I have not yet found a shed, but i have found 4 skulls on public land.

Most of my sheds this year were in open woods, but I have found them in CRP thickets, open hardwoods, grassy clearings, and even in the middle of a crop field. Wherever you think the bucks are bedding, traveling and feeding.
