I have been training my lab mix to track and find deer sheds.She is doing really well with the store bought sheds that I hide in the parks and open fields. Would anyone with a lot of deer experience on this forum be willing to offer some advise. I mainly duck hunt and don't know a lot about the deer seasons. Looking for the best time of year to begin hunting for sheds as well as the best places to go. I only have access to public land so I am not currently on a lease. Any advise is appreciated.

No idea where you are, but here in the Tyler area, they still have their antlers. There are several big Park areas along the Sabine River that I would look into if I wanted to search for sheds. If you go, remember that snakes will be waking up pretty soon and it will be breeding season in another month or so.

Thank you so much...I am in the Dallas FT Worth area. Sorry I should've mentioned that. I do have time to head to Tyler. I will try it out. Thank you again.

I still have a few bucks on camera that still have their antlers. Some bucks dropped them a good while back. This active camera business is a bit new to me, and I’m watching bucks more closely, but I have no feel for when the antler dropping should be over.
