The Nevada Department of Wildlife has made it illegal to collect shed antlers--"sheds" being naturally lost pieces of bone, in contrast to horns, which are not lost and have a different structure--in 6 Nevada Counties during some winter and early spring months when shed hunters might disturb the animals. There are reports of shed hunters disturbing wildlife, disturbing natural habitat with off-road vehicles, and even harassing animals to cause them to shed!
