Rock Springs, WY (AP) - Horn and antler collectors can return to some state land west of the Continental Divide after a four-month prohibition to avoid disturbing wildlife.
The Rock Springs Rocket Miner reports Wyoming Game and Fish allowed the gathering of shed horns and antlers to resume Thursday.
Gathering was banned from Jan. 1 to April 30 on state land and most other public land west of the divide to avoid stressing wildlife during winter months when they are most vulnerable.
The gathering season will close Dec. 31.
