Shed Hunting Tip
Most bulls shed their antlers during March and April when their testosterone levels are the lowest. Depending on snow-depth and weather, the elk may still be down on winter range or starting to move back into the hills following the new green grass. Either way, for shed hunters it pays to hit the tree line. Yes, lots of bulls shed their antlers out on open, grassy south-facing slopes but if you manage to be the first on up there, these spots can be a honey hole. Good areas for searching are natural funnels, saddles, tight canyons and brushy draws that show signs of recent use. Upon finding a good antler, flag the spot or log it into your GPS and search hard for the other antler. Good luck.
