I can't remember where I saw it, but there are, or used to be, some outfitters that actually booked shed hunting trips. Myself, I'm not sure I'd want to pay for it, but I just thought I'd mention it.
I love shed hunting though. For me, the rush of finding a big antler is almost as good as tagging the animal. Just knowing he survived and could be around next year, and possibly even bigger is very motivating to me.
Pa isn't exactly the best state for shed hunting. I envy you guys in states where shed hunting is really productive.
The neighbor to where we hunt in Iowa found 58 sheds (in one year) a few years ago. The pile and quality of those sheds was very impressive.
I now realize that, for many years, I would start shed hunting much too early each year. I thought that by late January, most antlers were on the ground. Boy was I wrong. I was trying to find antlers that weren't even on the ground yet. And I think I was most likely disturbing bucks and pushing them onto neighboring properties where I didn't have permission to go. It's common here to see bucks holding antlers into April. My tip...don't start too early. Let bucks stay undisturbed in their core areas until April. Then go find their sheds.
