No Shed Antler Gathering In Utah

Shed antler gathering curtailed until April 1

No, this isn’t a pre-April Fool’s Day joke.

Utah’s Division of Wildlife Resources Director Greg Sheehan signed an emergency order Feb. 2 closing shed antler gathering on public and private land until April 1.

Closing shed antler gathering statewide “will eliminate a major source of human-caused disturbance to deer and elk during the periods they are most exposed and vulnerable,” says the order signed by Sheehan.

“Although winter conditions are generally less severe in the southern portions of the state,” Sheehan says, “snowpack is still above average, and deer and elk are stressed.”
