Shed hunting techniques

Anyone have anything they do special to find sheds? When I'm out searching for them the thought that constantly goes through my mind is "this is like finding a needle in a haystack".

What really ticks me off is watching those hunting shows and they find TRUCK LOADS of them. I'm talking 100's and 100's of them. COMON' REALLY <--- I yell

Just take your time and go slow. They blend in well, so by the time you see them you'll probably be practically stepping on it.

if you have any extra money buying a semi or fully trained shed dog would increase your find drastically and might even make you money if you find lots of nice sheds and sell them, also you could train your own dog but it would take almost a year of your time.

They find that many because they're at private deer farms. I bet there are some public places in this country where sheds are a little more plentiful but nothing like they show you on television.
Those "pros" find their sheds the same way they hunt their game, on fenced farms!
That hunting style is set far apart from what real hunting is all about, whether they're filming for shed antlers or game animals it's easier for them to make movies that way.

Question Hi Deb,Saw your post

Hi Deb,Saw your post and got interested in your own hoibbt home existing in lil ol' Perth. Would love to come and see such awesome architecture in my native city.Any chance of coming to have a look at what you have built?I'm currently up in Exmouth, hoping to get land to embark on a project with a mate and I. We aim to have a few accommodations made from monolithic building practises, as well as a sunken amphitheatre made from earthbags. Our project is called Option B':Option B is unique tourist accommodation: an eco-friendly hostel/backpackers/camping area all rolled in to one, created from scratch and run with as minimal an impact on the environment as possible with a focus on educating guests of all walks of life about sustainable living practices and introducing them to the splendid surrounds of the Gascoyne region. Option B will endeavour to use natural resources (such as solar and wind generated power) for energy on site, as well as solely using recycled materials to build guest accommodations (converted caravans, train carriages, yachts and hoibbt homes') that are designed to aesthetically reflect a “green” business geographically located in an area with spectacular marine life and a plethora of water based activities nearby. Minimising water wastage will be a priority and made effective via grey water systems, compost waste solutions and self- sufficient gardens. Ample edible produce from our garden beds will be a task, to say the least, in Exmouth's harsh climate but it's a challenge we're looking forward to tackling. Whilst the business wouldn’t be “off-the-grid” or entirely self-sustainable, the concept that we hope would appeal to guests would be that of attaining as close to a carbon neutral option as possible while staying at our ‘homestay away from home’. Option B will provide a wealth of activities (and advice on activities) without stretching the visitor’s budget. We're aiming to (gradually over time) fine tune our approach to tourist accommodation that will hopefully develop a unique vibe on site and one day make Option B a tourist attraction/destination in itself set in the stunning surrounds of Exmouth, built and run by two enthusiastic West Australians who collectively hold over two decades of experience in the hospitality industry. My mobile is 0420 228 104 and email is . I'm back in Perth for a week in the middle of November. BR,Peteps. Jim awesome hoibbt home. If I'm ever in NY I'll definitely come visit!

Ronn I wasn't even going to reply to your post but I think it's best for me to shine light on your misunderstanding to what I posted.

If you Re-read the "Quote" and then Re-read my "REPLY" to the quote you'll see that the Quote AND My Reply was about televison shows not about Md., De., or New Jersey shed hunting BUT you might also notice that in my reply I said "I bet there are some public places in this country where sheds are a little more plentiful but nothing like they show you on television."

this is the last i'll say on the mater.

opinions are one thing, you know what they say about them, but you stated it as a fact that all these truck loads of sheds comes from fence in areas which is not a true statement. then you took the time based on an untrue statement to belittle another hunter. so i called you on it. and i will call anyone on it if they trash another hunter pursuing his legal pursuits.
