I was talking to a long time outfitter today and the subject of sheds came up. I was asking when should I really hit it and he pointed out that on the game ranges you cant pick any up until May 15. He also said that a game warden had told him that this last year they started putting microchips in sheds. Their plan is to put them in plain site from the roads, so as to intice people into illegally picking them up before May 15. But they said they will likely let the horn go a couple days in hope that it goes to somebody that is buying them illegally. They already put these chips in Grizzly bears and have had great success. A local this year poached a grizz that had a chip and within a couple hours the game warden had him in custody and recovered the bear! So if you see a monster shed laying right off the road, you might want to camp out until May 15!!
