The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is reminding would-be antler hunters, it isn’t May first yet. There is a season in place which prohibits the gathering of horns or shed antlers from January 1 until May 1 at 6:00 am on public lands across much of western and southern Wyoming.

This regulation has been in effect since 2009 and includes all federal and state-owned lands. A map of the closure area is available online and the boundaries are detailed within the regulation.

In addition, Game and Fish points out that many big game winter ranges in both Teton and Sublette counties have additional restrictions to either human presence or motor vehicles during the winter months.

However, the shed antler regulation does apply to all other federal or public lands not covered under such winter range closures.
