I try to stay out of my private spots until march so I don't disturb the deer. Does it make a difference I don't know but in my mind it does. Public spots I'll walk once every week until march then sometimes twice a week depending on my schedule.
Of course you could just not worry about it and let me and my hope to be trained shed dogs pick em up! :cheers:
actualy they start shedding in december.2 years ago i found a matched set walking a trail to my stand and right before dark had an 8 pointer come through and skirt my shooting lanes and watched him drop both his before he walked off.every year you hear about guys shooting deer they thought were big does but are actualy shed bucks.you will allso hear the guys that shot bucks and poped the racks off while trying to drag them out granted not many of them shed that early but there are some that do i usually start shed hunting right after bow seasons done
