Most deer will hold their antlers on into February, but you will see a rare few that drop this early. It is all testosterone driven. When a buck gets worn down from the rut and loses that desire, his antlers will begin to fall off. I've seen them hold their antlers until April.

I wouldn't bother looking for a good while.

I was in Henderson county driving toward Natchez Trace and saw a real nice buck acting frisky toward a nice doe. They were in a pasture only about 15 feet off the highway, and he still had all his antlers.
