Antler hunt begins on National Elk Refuge

Brad Orme, left, of Ashton, Idaho, and Tat Cutler, of St. Anthony, Idaho, unload a haul of antlers from their horse Friday afternoon after returning from shed hunting on national forest lands adjacent to the National Elk Refuge. Orme has been coming to the antler hunt for 15 years, but this was Cutler’s first time. New rules this year mandated that no one was allowed to touch or collect antlers until noon Friday, so many hunters went out and sat by their finds until then.
