Obsessive complusive here. Can't hunt so I scout, or take pictures, or anything to follow elk. Seems like all the easily found antler sheds are picked up at Memorial day so I like to look for them this time of year.
It seems like there is a large window of time when they may drop. I know they can fall as early as March. On Saturday while hunting sheds I came upon 3 bulls. 2 were still wearing antlers but the 3rd had shed his. We've had a tough winter and they were thin and ragged looking. Maybe by this weekend they will have fallen.
