    Has any one here ever found sheds in either the Wilson or Trask areas lately? I haven't hunted these areas before (deer or elk) but plan on heading out there this fall. I also plan on doing some scouting soon, starting in a couple of weeks looking for sheds. Just hoping to get some pointers from some of you. No..... I'm not trying to get your secret spots, just looking for as much info as possible from those with more experience than me.

    Thanks.

    Sheds are pretty tough to find in NW Oregon, in my experience. You darn near have to trip over them to find them. I usually only find a couple a year just because the woods are so thick.

    This won't help you right now but...I read an article in a "sportsmans" type magazine that was all about a guy in the midwest who trained his lab to find sheds, it was great. Farmers used him to get sheds off the fields so it didn't damage tractor tires. It's a good read if you can find it on the net. But what a great way to spend a day with your dog in the hills.
