Antler Shed Hunting (April 9, 2022)

Reminder: You can only possess shed antlers. Anything else must have a legal possession number.

Tips on Finding Sheds: 

  • If you live in an area with elevation, check south facing slopes
  • Check for deer bedding areas
  • Try to locate an area that may have food sources like Beech twigs, Eastern White Pine seedlings, Maple twigs, Mountain Laurel twigs, Blackberry Briars, Tops of trees cut during logging, and Oak twigs in concentrated areas
  • Check fences or obstacles where they may need to jump over, shaking loose their antlers
