ive found a few dead deer over the years. some random bones once in a while. i mostly search fields because we have pretty small wood lots on our land, so i dont find a whole lot of anything. i found some arrows one year that a buddy had lost the year before. i also found an arrow from a deer that i thought i had missed. turned out i hit the deer and in walking around, the arrow had fallen out on a trail and i found it the next spring when shed hunting. i have no idea what happened to the deer.
the deer also dont winter in the woods we have, so the odds of finding a shed are next to nothing on the property i hunt. i still walk the trails, but i dont get too crazy.
dont wait 'till summer though, get out anytime from now through the spring. you wont find much by summer.
