MISSION: Bringing shed hunters of all ages and locations together to create the best place on the web to share shed hunting info and pictures. Moose, Elk, Deer, All WILD! Leave no tine behind!
Craig Bell – My passion for Shed Hunting stems from the day I saw my first antlered buck in the wild. My father took my younger brother and I on the trapline since I was the age of 4. We were heading out to check traps one early morning in late December 1988 when an 8 point buck chased three does out into the field in front of us. My eyes were fixed on the rack! I was mesmerized. I then decided, that very moment, the only thing in life I wanted was to feel those antlers in my hands! A deer hunter was born that day! I began hunting hard every year, and when I started harvesting bucks, one set of antlers a year didn’t even begin to feed my need for bone. My best friend Billy’s father, Gary, always had single antlers in his garage hanging on the rafters. He was the first person to explain to me, “Kid, those horns fall off every year, just go pick them up.” A shed Hunter was born! I found my first antler in 1993, while checking beaver traps, and 21 years later I have found 1000’s of antlers in 10 different states. They include Boone and Crockett size sets and singles that fit in your pocket as well as two point sides and spikes!
Mike Darby – I was born and raised in Idaho and I live to shed hunt! I have a wife and 4 kids that all enjoy the outdoors. I also have 2 shed dogs that I have trained myself. My saying is “Family first!” There is nothing better then seeing your kid’s face when they pick up their first shed! We need to keep the outdoor tradition going, so remember to take your kids along. It will be something they never forget!
Dan Ewaskowitz – I was born and raised in Northeast Wisconsin. I grew up hunting and fishing. I didn’t get into shed hunting until I was 17 when a friend let me tag along for a walk looking for sheds after school. After finding four sheds in an hour, including a big set just off the road in the snow, I was hooked for life! Now, 12 years later, shed hunting is a huge part of my life, with a collection of over 3,600 personal finds. Traveling to Montana, Illinois and all over the midwest has become a huge part of my spring. Taking trail cam photos and finding sheds from the bucks I hunt has become much more important than harvesting an animal. Walking for sheds is a great scouting tool, and just a great way to stay in shape and spend some quality time in the outdoors!
Eric Stanosheck – I grew up hunting, fishing and shed hunting with my Dad and uncles. I found my first shed in Colorado 30 years ago and haven’t stopped since. I’ve found sheds in 12 states and Canada and average over 500 sheds each spring with over 700 miles hiked on my boots. My daughter and my 2 labs are my occasional shed buddies as well, but my Dad still does all the hardcore mountain shed hunting with me. Shed hunting is not only a passion and obsession for me but it supports my business, www.AntlerPicasso.com, where I use thousands of sheds annually to make one of a kind furniture and lighting for my growing list of clients. Each year I take first-time hunters and wounded warriors alike out to experience mother nature and the hunt. These are the memories that keeps me pushing forward each year!
