    Since other states bordering western Wyoming have introduced seasons they had an alot of non residents coming to Wyoming and with the western side having so much public land it was just to hard on the Animals.We all know most of our winter kill comes from big spring snows. I live is southeastern Wyoming and there are no restrictions, and i won't go out until May 1st. I may missout on the sheds but i want to see mature animals in the fall, not dying in the spring because they kept wasting valuable energy running away from people beeting the brush looking for antlers. Hopefully there will be some left in May. I just use them as lawn decorations.

    SERIOUS cabin fever sets in about now. All my gear is gone through, cleaned, packed, checked, held, and touched...lol
    Sometimes I even put on my pack and chase the dog just to find something to do.....
    So in other words, NO, I have not gone out shed hunting yet.....
    Although I didn't move here from the city that pretty much sums it up. That and the last bull I saw (Saturday) was still in possession of his headgear.

    I guess it's cause that's what we did growing up. My family used to go out arrowhead hunting in the red desert and when we were lucky enough to find an antler or two we just put them in a pile in the back yard. I have friends who sell them. I just put them in the front yard. I actually have a guy that lives by me that he trained his dog to sniff out antlers, he usually gets out once in a while and tries to take the freshest antlers in my yard.

    I beg to differ.......however, they are A LOT tougher to find in the steep chaparral hillsides. But I find a few each year in the So Cal mountains. Combine it with early scouting trips.
