    When is a good time to start looking for shed antlers?

    PLEASE wait until all hunting seasons are closed,some of us are still hunting. THEN HAVE AT IT,as some bucks are already dropping.

        Try to locate some winter yards or areas where deer move to when it gets colder....early spring after the snow melts completely or an early thaw.As 6phunter says....it is not uncommon to encounter a buck late into bow season with one antler (Dec 20 onwards)...good luck

          During spring time as soon as the snow clears so that you can get the antlers before the squirells and porcupines nibble on the sheds. Scouting for turkeys is a good time to keep and eye out for sheds or even while hunting the turkeys.

            The rut is just now getting ready to kick off down here and the antlers won't be dropping for another couple of months.

                It rained here in northwest PA and all the snow melted and my little brother found half a shed.
