When Should You Search for Shed Whitetail Antlers?

28

You may find shed antlers here and there as you hike or hunt. But Tony Peterson of “Outdoor News” says looking for white-tailed deer antlers during the right conditions can improve your success:

“It might seem strange to consider “good” hunting conditions for antlers, however, over the years that’s exactly what I’ve come to find although as a side note, any time you get to walk through the woods is worth it. However, if you’re time is limited and you’ve got your heart set on finding a matched set, consider when you plan to shed hunt.”
