Additional information: One more point of clarification on the deer antler collection discussion. A shed antler has specific characteristics that is present and identifies it as an antler that has naturally fallen from a live deer. With this said, the Department of Natural Resources has no interest in regulating “shed antlers”. However, the presence of a skull with the antlers identifies that a deer has died. Our interest is in what has caused the mortality of the deer and the circumstances surrounding it, therefore a permit is required to allow for investigation, if needed. It is the policy of the DNR Law Enforcement Executive staff that citizens may collect shed antlers that have been naturally discarded without the need for a permit.
