Get Outside in NH and Find a Deer Antler (VIDEO)

Sunday 02/07/2021

And it is mid winter that the adult bucks, male deer, are actually shedding their antlers they so painstakingly grew last spring and summer. Same goes for bull moose. These shed antlers are called "sheds" or "drops". It happens every winter. And there is a growing number of outdoor enthusiasts who are not going out to find these drops. It's great winter fun, especially if you are a deer hunter. It's just another form of hunting. So you are not hunting a deer but just an antler or two.
