Q. I want to collect shed antlers, what sort of license do I need and what sort of restrictions are there?
A. You don’t need a license, and the only restrictions are on access and travel on the land.
Shed hunters, like other outdoor recreationists, must secure permission to cross or look for antlers on private land, and they must abide by vehicle restrictions on federal and state public lands.
Shed hunting typically starts in early spring, but shed hunters are asked to avoid disturbing animals during winter while they are conserving their resources to try to make it through to spring.
