Still Too Early For Antler Collection

antler

With the advent of spring weather and the melting of snow, some have been turning their thoughts to the collection of elk antlers.  However, Bridger Teton National Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says it is still too early to be engaging in that activity in many areas of the forest. Cernicek says the Forest still has a winter range closure and road restrictions in effect until May first.  So those areas remain closed to forest users and activity. Cernicek points out that the wildlife is worn out from surviving the winter months and trying to build up energy reserves again.  While those areas will open early next month, Cernicek points out that some areas adjacent the Forest prohibit the collection of antlers altogether. Cernicek says Forest maps for summer travel plan will be issued after May first, and antler collectors would be well advised to consult them to assure they don’t cross the forest boundary into those areas where antler collection is completely restricted year around.  Among the areas that prohibit the collection of any animal parts at any time, including antlers, are the National Elk Refuge and the National Parks.

    Just how does a new offensive philosophy affect the wide receivers?  One position that the Wyoming Cowboys were deep at on the offensive side of the ball was wide receiver.  That’s because they were used to trotting out five wide-outs every snap, so the need for those players was essential.  Now that two, maybe three […]
  • Why can’t I find old-school camo? Wait, don’t answer that. - August 27, 2014
    Where did that good old, brown, tan and black camo pattern go? You know what I mean. The pattern duck and goose hunters used to wear all the time. It was just splotches of dark brown, light brown and a little bit of black. Big splotches. I’ve been complaining for years that you can’t find […]
