No cedars in our country. Here antlers are mostly in elevations between 6,000'-9,000'. Sheds are found in the sagebrush, grass, mahogany & pines.
Get up high and glass down below you and across the canyon. Glass 20 yds to a mile away.
Antlers are on the ridges, slopes facing South, West, East and North-West. Pick up those antlers and glass back where you came from. Then go back across the canyon and get the ones you bypassed. Go back a few days later and the bulls will have passed through again and dropped more. Make a mental note where the bulls passed through the snow and wait for the snow to melt and go back again.
It helps if you have trained for a 50 KM footrace through the mountains and finished 1st in the 40-49 year old class.
