If you’re looking for a reason to get outdoors and experience nature, and not worry about spending a ton of money on hunting equipment, shed hunting can be a cool hobby.
Get outside, get in nature, find some cool antlers to decorate the house… shed hunting is a great way to get after it.
The sweet spot for shed hunting is generally February and March, however some bucks can lose theirs as early as December, and as late as April.
With that being said, you always have to be careful in the woods…
Although we have very little info on the situation, based on the shoe in x-ray, it looks like they’ve might have been trail running (not actively shed hunting), but boy, they found a shed the hard way.
In one of the gnarliest accidents I’ve ever seen, the antler went straight up, piercing through the sole and the foot… nearly breaking through the top of the shoe.
