I travel the mountain roads daily and have seen a number of roadkills can i remove antlers from dead roadkill and keep them?

Answer

Possession and Sale of Wildlife Found Dead:  Big game animal parts, such as hides, horns – except horns from bighorn sheep – bones, antlers and teeth, of deer, elk, moose, pronghorn, mountain goat, black bear, mountain

lion and gray wolves that have died of natural causes, including legally salvaged road kill, may be recovered, possessed, purchased, bartered, sold or transferred. If sold, black bear and mountain lion parts must be

accompanied by documentation on how they were obtained.

Legally salvaged road kill may not be used as bait for hunting or trapping, except in the Panhandle wolf management zone where it may be used as bait in trapping wolves only.

Edible meat from game animals taken from the wild may not be purchased, bartered or sold.

Protected species of wildlife that have died of natural causes are considered property of the state and may not be possessed
