    I have a big 8 coming to my feeder at home. He made it through the season and I would love to find his sheds. Before you guys call me fat and lazy, I don't have access to where he is living so I was thinking of building an antler trap in my yard. I found a picture of one online and it looks easy to build and appears to be pretty safe.

    Has anyone ever used one? I don't want to hut the deer so if anyone has pics or plans of a safe trap please post them.

    I'll try and post some pics of the deer tonight when I get home.

    The farmer by me has a home made antler trap... it's a barbed wire fence. I've found LOTS of sheds within 20 yards of the fence. Guess the fence knocks the antlers off when the deer are crossing under it.

    saw this in F&S...

    take thin fence or barbwire... then wrap it aroud a tree... with like 2 ft coming off on each side... make the opening like 30" apart.. run steel rods into the ground to attach the fence so ur making like a triangle... thro some food/corn at the base of the tree... when he walkes in the wat the corn.. antlers rattle into the fencing knocking the horns off...
    i am thinking of trying this.. myself
    Ima meatatarian.... i only eat meat...it's a personal choice that i have made....

    i heard that if u hang a 5 gallon bucket with a hole at the bottom with feed corn inside, the deer will come at it from underneath to get the corn outta the bucket, and the antlers will bang against the bucket, knocking them off...i dont kno how successful it is but woth a shot

    Wait until the deer comes to the feeder, run outside very fast and tackle it. While your rolling around on the ground with it, pull off his antlers!

    either that or the antlers are dislodged by the jolt of the deer hitting the ground after jumping the fence. Fence jumps are always a good place to find sheds
