Hunting shed antlers is sport, too
There is a real good chance that when I hit the woods in a few weeks checking for turkey sign, I’ll find a bonus. Likely, I’ll find a shed buck antler or two. Seldom does a year go by that I don’t run across discarded headgear from a good buck or a dinky little spike or fork-horn.
Now that deer season is over, bucks are starting to drop antlers and there are some people who have taken the sport of looking for shed antlers to a new level. Some even belong to clubs whose members compete to see who can find the biggest and the most sheds during the offseason.
