I don't know if it the lack of winter weather or what, but it seems like shed hunting is underway in earnest around the Chicago area earlier than normal.
Tim and Tanja Eaker, a Lockport couple who are licensed falconers, were hunting near Joliet when Tim found this shed.
More sheds to come, I am certain, this month and next.
I made this Buck of the Week: Unplugged, the weekly celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors, today on the Sun-Times outdoors page. Not sure why the Field Notes have not been posting online.
My plan today is get in a little looking around myself before the Big Game.
