Default sheds

Where is the most common place to find sheds? Near bedding areas? Between food plots and bedding areas? etc.....

I've always been told to look along old rub lines, Don't know if it's true or not, but makes sense.

Check deer trails, fence lines, food plots. Chances you'll find them where the deer move not bed!

I don't know that there is a right or wrong place to look since when a bucks antler is ready to fall off it's gonna fall off no matter where he is. I have find antlers out in the middle of a big hay fields to thick brush to spruce swamps to old grown up pastures. I guess I have looked in bedding areas and fence lines and fence crossing like everyone says you should but, I can't say that I have found more antlers in those area than I have in any other area. So your guess is as good as anyones as to where to look and I think the key is just putting the time in to look for them and covering as much ground as you can. I can't wait to start looking for them. Good luck

I like to look around obstacles such as fences or logs the deer would have to jump over. Alot of times that impact from jumping will cause the antler to fall off.

exactly correct, you want to find sheds you gotta cover a lot of ground, I've found them in beds, on trails, off the edges of food plots , and many times in open fields. I also take my labs and they help find them

have never tried it, but a guy told me around that time he put up a few feet of fence, and poured out some corn right at the bottom, between the fence and the ground. and when the deer would eat the corn their horns would go in between the wire and help the horn fall off,

NEVER DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
if you dothatyou might kill a buck thats horns are not ready to fall off because he will get stuck and not be able to get free and if he does the antlers are gonna be ruined. Look at the bed because that is where a buck will spend most of his time and that is most likely where they will fall off.
