Shed hunting is my second favorite activity in the outdoors besides whitetail hunting. Its time I get to spend with my boys on the ranch. I explain it to them as the Easter egg hunt for antlers. Shed hunting also allows me the chance to see how many big bucks never showed their face this past season and to get a tape on their antlers.
Some of these are pretty obvious but why check fence lines, creeks and drains. You want to check places where a whitetail will need to jump or exert energy. Any jolting can shake a bucks antlers loose.
