Best Whitetail Shed Finds of 2015

shed_f6Sometimes the offseason is just unbearable. Sure, there's the Super Bowl and March Madness to pass the time. But let's face it: those don't even come close to the excitement of the season.

For some, the offseason is nothing but an excuse to veg out in front of the TV and forget about hunting until next season; but for the whitetail addict, the offseason is the real preseason and the beginning to a successful fall season. It's the perfect time to get back into the field and do some shed hunting — and to see what others are finding. The racks are large and plentiful if you know where to look.


Whether you're out there for fun or to compete with your buddies for the ultimate set of sheds, it's all about the passion for year-round whitetail madness. That's why we teamed up with Craig Bell and Shed Heads to find the biggest and best whitetail shed finds of the year.

Perhaps no other group is better preserving shed hunting today than the folks at Shed Heads. Founded by Craig Bell, Shed Heads is a passion-driven project to find more antlers and promote the sport of shed hunting for future generations to enjoy.


With shed hunters located all over North America, from Texas to Saskatchewan and Idaho to Vermont, Craig and his team log thousands of miles in all types of terrain and conditions searching for shed antlers. Whether its giant moose or whitetail and everything in between, his team searches in all types of climate and terrain in pursuit of fallen bone.

In an attempt to tide you over until next season, we've rounded up some of the best shed finds from Craig and the Shed Head team in 2015:
