New regulation limits growing practice of antler collection

Onetime hobby has become a profitable business
Colorado has enacted a shed antler hunting closure between Jan 1 and April 30. This year, the closure begins March 2.
Don Hoard and Shawn Hansel buy antlers in Dolores in 2015. They buy antlers for Wild West Designs, located in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which uses them to make chandeliers and furniture. “You have to hike a lot,” Hansel said.
Elk shed their antlers in winter, but now you can’t collect them until after April 30.
