Wherever the deer in your area are spending the most time in the next 6 weeks will be your best bet! Ive found them in all types of terrain and cover, but feeding areas and thick areas such as powerlines have been very good to me over the years, when I actually took the time to shed hunt.

One tactic is to act like you're looking for a bone-colored marble instead of an antler. Or a small bone, instead of an antler. You will seldom see the whole antler from the first position you can see a small portion of it.

When antlers are lying tines up, and especially one with 4 or more points, from a distance, it may appear as 3 to 5 marbles close together in a row (as all you see are the tine points protruding above the grass line or leaves.

Another place to be looking is ABOVE the ground, especially in honeysuckle where they're feeding. Last year I found a beautiful shed from a 130-plus buck about 4 feet above the ground, hanging in some honeysuckle.
