No shed collecting in Dinosaur Nat’l Monument

Gathering shed antlers is a popular and lucrative activity—with antlers used for everything from chandeliers, to knife handles, to dog chews. Dinosaur National Monument staff are reminding antler hunters that all items, including deer and elk antlers, within Dinosaur National Monument are protected by law and may not be removed. Collecting antlers is a violation of 36 CFR 2.1(a)(1)(i), which covers possessing, removing or disturbing wildlife parts such as antlers. Violating this regulation will result in a fine up to $5,000 and/or up to six months in prison. The monument’s boundary is generally well-marked, but shed collectors are responsible for knowing who manages the property they are on and its rules and regulations.
