Shed Retrieval - UKC Elite Shed Dogs

Just wondering if anyone has done shed retrieval with their golden? I'm going to start training this spring with my golden. We have done tracking and nosework in the past and I have quite a bit of acreage that I would like to get her out on to find some sheds from this past winter. I've been reading through some of the UKC rules and following some training guides and videos.

Would be interested to see what success some of have had with shed retrieval.

Deer shed their antlers every winter/spring. Shed retrieval is becoming a popular sport here in Michigan in the spring once the snow thaws.
