At the Ranch – Whitetail: Training Your Eyes to Spot Sheds

Something that is often overlooked, especially by beginner shed hunters, is to train your eyes to spot sheds. The first thing I mean is that you need to understand how sheds lay on the ground. It’s not just tines up out in the open. Many times, sheds will hardly be noticeable and if you can pick up on small parts of a tine or the curvature of a main beam, you’ll start finding more antlers. The biggest thing you can do to train your eyes is to bring a practice antler, throw it over your back, then turn around and see how quick you can find it. You might be surprised at how hard it can be. In the long run, this will only help you find more sheds.
