I've shed hunted before, with mediocre success, but then I read the article in Outdoor Life. I saw that OL had an internet article on how to teach your dog to find sheds for you. I still haven't read it, but I thought it would be fun to get my pup out w/ me and walk through the woods. I found one shed myself then placed it in a couple spots and told him to fetch it up. I let him follow my scent to the location. Then I started covering the shed antler with leaves and sending him farther to find it. He got pretty good, but I know I was cheating. Hey, that's how they learn right? Well, next thing I know, my pup was chewing on another shed while I was still busting brush. I was proud of him. You guys let your dogs do other things with you?
