World's Largest Shed Hunt Announced

posted on February 5, 2014

The time for hunting sheds has nearly arrived, and this year hunters from across the country will be able to share their stories on social media in the inaugural #ShedRally. On March 1, Whitetail Properties Real Estate and several other outdoor industry brands are calling on all hunters to participate in the first-ever #ShedRally.

The concept is simple: Get out there, enjoy the great outdoors, hunt for sheds and post photos of your findings to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ShedRally.

Once March 1 has come and gone, Whitetail Properties will judge the photos with the #ShedRally hashtag and award the most original and creative users with prizes from Realtree, Scent-Lok, Tenzing and more.

"We want to make history by organizing the largest shed hunt ever," said Whitetail Properties public relations and marketing director Michael Turbyfill. "Social media allows us to unite outdoor enthusiasts in one conversation and no matter your state or region, if you're shed hunting on March 1 and using the #ShedRally hashtag, the world can see your photos in real time."

Throughout February, the Whitetail Properties team of pros will post shed hunting tips, tactics, and exclusive photos and videos on the official Whitetail Properties Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. These can be found at and on Twitter and Instagram using the @WhitetailProperties handle.
