John Breen Buck Shed Hunting

The John Breen Buck

I saw this cool video on youtube of a big buck taken deer hunting in Minnesota back in 1918, known as the John Breen buck. At the time this video was made the John Breen buck was the Minnesota state record whitetail. It is an absolutely beautiful buck and is awesome. It was at one time the world record deer, yep I said it world record deer. He harvested the big Minnesota whitetail in 1918, in Funkley Minnestoa. They said when he brought it home it wouldn’t even fit through the doorway. The great buck has a gross typical score of 215″ and a net typical score of 202″. That is pretty impressive for a ten point typical buck. I would love to see this great buck in person I bet it is really impressive. I would love to hear the full story about the hunt he took this buck on I bet it was incredible, especially when he got to put his hands on that massive rack for the very first time. It is definitely a dream buck that most people never see in a lifetime of hunting whitetails. I filmed a buck that was very similar to this buck in my backyard here in Kansas, I got over eight minutes of footage of him. He was a typical twelve pointer that we think would have been very close to if not a Kansas stare record. We never recovered him.

My friend Patrick went shed hunting in Kansas a couple of weeks ago and found a nice set of sheds. It’s not to late to get out and find those big sheds. Also it’s time to put out lime and fertilizer and get those food plots ready to be planted. Get those soil samples and you will see a big difference in your deer hunting food plots.

Patrick found these antlers on a recent shed hunting trip in Kansas.

Shed Hunting Producing Whitetail Sheds

Have you ever been shed hunting? I haven’t had a chance to go this year, but have heard from some friends at work that they are finding some very nice whitetail sheds.

Shed Hunting

This buck was found on a recent shed hunting trip in Missouri.

My friend Greg found this dead deer while shed hunting in Missouri a few days ago. It’s hard to say why he died, but this has been a very harsh winter here in the mid-west and it is possible the the big bucks rut so hard and lose so much weight doing so that they just can’t recover enough body weight to be able to withstand the severe weather. You hate to find big bucks dead but it happens. I am really wanting to get out and find some whitetail sheds but have been so busy I just can’t find time to get out. But I am making myself a promise good lord willing I am going shed hunting very soon.

Finding whitetail sheds can be a lot of fun.

Greg also sent me this picture of some nice whitetail sheds he found on a recent trip.

It will be time to start working on food plots soon. It also isn’t to late to do some controlled ¬†burns. My father said they did a burn on their deer hunting property back in Georgia a few weeks ago. He said they had a good burn and it should help the property. Control burning can be very beneficial to wildlife habitat. Check your local laws and regulations before you burn. Spring is right around the corner, but it is snowing like crazy here in Kansas today. I am ready for some warm sunny weather, it has been a long cold first winter in Kansas for this ole Georgia boy. My father called me a little while ago and said it was sunny and in the seventies today, the first day of turkey season in Georgia. And there has already been two big toms taken at their hunting club on opening morning. Man I sure miss home!
