Harvesting antler sheds

Q: When is it legal to hunt or harvest antler sheds in Minnesota?

A: Minnesota Statute 97B.22 allows for the taking and possession of naturally shed antlers, but also forbids any person from placing, arranging, or setting equipment in a manner that is likely to artificially pull, sever, or otherwise cause antlers of live deer, moose, elk or caribou to be shed or removed.
Minnesota does not have a designated time frame in which the sheds can be taken. The important thing to remember is that in order to take or possess these antlers they must be naturally shed. If they are acquired any other way, including from roadkill, a permit must be acquired.

This kinda stuff happens in areas around here with relative frequency...

No kidding that was a Trophy even to DE's standards.  Cut out a chunk of tire with it and hang it in the living room.   :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :happy1: :happy1:
