- I saw a post about shed hunting: Question- What constitutes a shed? If the antler is attached to the skull of a carcass, may I collect as a shed?
Each year antlers from deer, elk, moose, and the horns of pronghorn fall off, or are shed; new antlers and horns begin to grow back and are fully grown again each fall.
Animal parts such as antlers, horns, hides, bones, and teeth of deer, elk, moose, pronghorn, wolf and mountain goat from animals that have died of natural causes, including legally salvaged road kills, may be recovered, possessed, purchased, bartered, sold or transferred.
Animal parts of bear and mountain lion that have died of natural causes, including legally salvaged road kills, may be recovered and possessed. Documentation must be provided to the buyer of any parts of bear or lion.
Bighorn sheep which have died of natural causes may be possessed but never purchased, sold or transferred. Once in possession they must be reported to Idaho Department of Fish and Game and pinned.
Legally harvested bighorn sheep horns that have been reported and pinned by Idaho Department of Fish and Game may be sold, bartered or transferred.
