Antler Hunting

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

With the snow quickly dwindling now is the best time to do a little horn hunting for shed antlers. The deer here I have found usually drop their antlers between December 20th to around the first week of January well before they enter their traditional yarding areas, atleast from my experience. If you know the area they were hanging around in the fall, walk the deer trails and you may get lucky. I like to walk through the bedding areas and the trails leading to and from them. I have gotten lucky on several occasions and have found some very nice antlers. If your really lucky you’ll find a matched set but do date I have only found one of those in all the years I have spent looking. It is a relaxing way to spend some time in the woods and enjoy nature.
