Elk Shed Hunting

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just got into hunting for elk sheds this year. With prices so high ($14 /lb) it has turned into a lucrative hobby. I know we have a lot of folks on this board that live in ski country which is also prime shed hunting territory so I am curious if anyone else is into this? If so, where do you hunt and how is it?

I find a few deer sheds here MTBing.  I cut them up for my hound.

Yeah, they are great for dog treats. A little piece of antler can sell for $20.

Big deal here also.  The sheds aren't supposed to be picked up until April 20th, and I know a few people who have been ticketed for picking them up early.  Supposedly the wildlife isn't ready to be pressured by motorized incursions until after 4/20.  I don't do it myself on purpose, but if I come across a shed in the Uinta mtns (Utah/Wyo border) while hiking/camping, it's coming with me.

How do you get the elk to stay in the sheds?  ;)

@Finndog , that is why they have to wait until 4/20, they don't come OUT of the shed til then. Gnar the shed.
