    I got in the habit of posting on Facebook about the Hunt Test and wild shed hunting. We found 21 sheds & dead heads in the spring of 2019. I was pleased except I stayed too close to home.

    Both Scotty and Perry have completed their Master Shed Title in NASHDA. That represents 6 Junior Courses Passes, 6 Senior Course Passes and 6 Master Course Passes for each dog. I own a majority of the missed antlers. It is humbling to make a mistake on a course but it does happen.

    I ran Scotty and Perry in UKC Hunt Test and they went 5 for 5 on their Working Shed Courses to complete the Working Shed Title. Scotty has 3 Champion Passes and Perry has 4 Champion Passes on UKC Course. I have gotten a Performance Listing for each of them with UKC so all points earned are accumlated.

    My boys and I are scheduled to run in Adams County, Ohio in Jan 2020, twice in northern Mississippi once in Feb and once in March. If West Virginia will conduct a hunt test I will travel there to run. In late May I expect I will travel to Jason MacPherson's farm in Mountain Grove, MO. I expect my boys to complete their Champion Title with UKC before June if we are able to travel as planned.

    Most importantly, I want to improve our wild shed numbers in 2020. To do that I believe i have to network better on locating good farms to shed hunt. Scotty and Perry are a joy to watch work in the woods hunting wild sheds.

    The main reason I wanted a shed dog was to hunt up wild shed antlers. 2020 should be the year for us to break out on how many we find.

    Thanks for reading this thread.

    Good luck with this spring's exploits! I love watching a dog do what it loves to do. He it; pointing, retrieving, flushing, finding sheds, etc... it's all good.

    I would like that if your little hunting buddy could watch the dogs run some. My Perry completed his Master Title in NASHDA so both of them have their Master Title. Running them at those events was a great experience for me as the handler.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    I’ve got a lab puppy incoming in 3 weeks. I’m going to read this thread (and re-read it) many times in the near future. I’m sure I’ll have lots of stupid questions.

    Meet Wilbur (the black pup in the front).
