Default antler hunting

this isn't really deer hunting but i've been wanting to find deer sheds and was wondering if there are any of you who shed hunt. How do you do it?

Thanks a lot for the help.

Default RE: antler hunting

Well I usually start around the end of January. I don't usually findanything at this time, but I love to be out there scouting and if I find a bone it's a bonus.
I usually find at leastone antler when I amturkeyhunting inthe spring. I like to hit it hard after the snow meltsusually mid to lateMarch where I am from.
Someday I would like to get a dog to help me find them.

Walk around bushes/woods/field edges. I've had my best luck on powerlines(good visibilty and food source), and a couple on fencelines. GO SLOW, them things are hard to spot, and take your bino's with you too. I have never found any till late febuary, and they get easier to see in mid march (the colors start to whiten up).
