Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Mar 25, 2017

Wayne Bolton walks miles.  We suggested that he try out a FitBit, just to keep track. As the "Shed Hunting Fool", over the last 20 something years, Wayne has spent almost every hour he had available from around mid-January to mid-April hunting for every antler he could locate. We estimate that this would be the equivalent of a second full time job and a second part time job if anyone is counting. But that effort pays off.  It's not uncommon for Wayne for find 50+ sheds a season (down from 100+ when the competition wasn't so great) and because he spends most of his shed hunting time in southwestern Ohio, he's finding some of nature's greatest sheds in America.  We were curious about how Wayne goes about this craft, how it relates to deer hunting, and how we could learn from his techniques and apply them anywhere in the country.  Oh, and stick around for Wayne's deer hunting story about a buck named Curley. It's a good one.
