Shed Hunting – Ranch Real Estate For Sale

Shed hunting season is underway on ranches for sale and public land in the Rocky Mountain Region. Each year in late winter/ early spring, elk and deer shed their antlers and begin the growing process that is completed by early fall. Shed hunting is an exciting experience for hunters and non-hunters alike. Not only is shed hunting rewarding, it is a great activity that can be enjoyed by the entire family. For many shed hunters, shed hunting provides an opportunity to learn about new country, get a great cardiovascular workout, and break up a long winter.

In the Rocky Mountain west, sheds are usually found in areas where animals will spend the winter months (winter range). These areas are typically lower in elevation and dryer. These characteristics enable animals to forage for food and avoid overly harsh winter conditions. Within an animals winter range, some good places to find shed antlers include; south facing slopes, fence lines, low brush covering game trails, and creek crossings.

Some states such as Wyoming land have recently placed regulations on shed hunting in certain areas in an effort to minimize the stress on animals in the vital late winter months. For this reason, it is important to check with local Game and Fish department to ensure compliance. Enjoy the hunt!
