I have found for our area the best time is usually Feb. Try looking in all the usual buck hang outs. Especially bedding areas, and routes to and from. I'm going to try something I saw in I think was Outdoor Life. Set 3 post and make a " V " with a link of something like hog wire, and then put corn at the pt. of the V.

They said the open end of the V should be about 3 ft. That way they can get in with the antlers and as they move in toward the corn the V narrows until the antlers touch and fall off.
