    It’s nice to see some progress on big game protection during the spring shed season. This problem has been getting worse over the last ten years. Hopefully we will see a “season date” codified throughout the Western states – May 1 is a good date, I think. There’s been some of this in places (where it’s illegal to possess a shed antler prior to a given date) but more is needed.

    As a devoted shed hunter myself, it drives me nuts to watch guys pushing deer in late February or elk in late March in hopes of seeing antlers fall off.
