BLM Reminds Shed-Antler Hunters to Keep Vehicles on Existing Roads
Shed-antler hunting is a great way to spend time enjoying public lands with friends and family in the spring. While most people responsibly search for antlers on foot or horseback there are a few people who illegally leave roads on ATV's or other motorized vehicles causing tremendous damage. It is illegal to travel off existing roads in a motor vehicle on BLM public lands in this area. Click here to view the entire news release.
