German Shepherd training issue

Four year old dog, great nose, great obedience, but.....he will find a shed in the yard in 15 seconds in the dark no problem, but in the field he wants to chase deer.  His motivation is food, always has been, but his darn prey drive prevents him from being a good shed hunter.  I am limiting food and just rewarding when he finds/returns with shed.  Not working to well, seems like I may need to hold off on food (reasonably of course), but if he gets hungry enough he will bolt to sheds .  Thoughts or training suggestions?
