Shed hunting is the practice of searching for antlers that have been naturally shed by male deer, elk, and moose during the late winter and early spring months. Shed hunting has become increasingly popular in recent years as a recreational activity and also as a way to supplement income by selling antlers, which are used in various crafts and decor.

Shed hunters typically search for antlers in areas where the animals spend their winter months, such as feeding areas, bedding areas, and travel corridors. They often use binoculars or spotting scopes to scan the landscape for antlers, and may also use dogs to help locate the antlers.

While shed hunting can be a fun and rewarding activity, it's important to practice ethical and responsible shed hunting. This includes obtaining permission from landowners before searching on private property, avoiding disturbing wildlife during sensitive times of the year, and following any local regulations or guidelines related to shed hunting.
