I have what is becoming a mild case of antler shed obsession. I find a few every year and it is one of the highlights of my outdoor adventures. My retriever is showing promise at finding them, and my son has decided on sheds for his Boy Scout collecting merit badge.
I'm sure many of you can see where I am going, so I'll cut to the chase. I'll trade flyfishing, duckhunting at my club or whatever else we can work out if you would be willing to take my son and budding antler sniffing dog out where we could find some sheds. I'll drive, bring some fantastic coffee, and we can split the sheds giving you first choice of the best bone, if it is a matched set, you get both. An elk shed would merit a cold one on me on the way home; I'll even spring for imported if you like.
I have one trip sked with a very generous Kifaruite who has already put me on some trout and would like to hang out with some more guys here who like the outdoors, want to help out a scout and may want to watch a Lab sniff out bones.
I apply the same ethic for sheds as I do duck hunting spots: I don't visit a spot unless it is with the guy who showed me where it is at. Secrecy is assured.
I live in Monument, so Front Range works, but honestly I'll drive a long ways for what will become a family heirloom. I say that about a lot of gear and my wife is skeptical about my definition of "heirloom".
