Frequently Asked Questions

What is shed hunting?

Shed hunting is hunting for antlers that have naturally fallen off moose, caribou, deer, and elk. Most visitors to the Kenai Peninsula are looking for moose sheds, though caribou sheds are equally fun to spot!

Is shed hunting legal?

Shed hunting is a totally legal pastime, though antler hunters should always be ethical when out in the field.

Why do people hunt for shed antlers?

Some hunt for shed antlers as a hobby, while others hunt them with the intent to sell what they find. In some environments, deer and big game hunters study animal behavior by finding their prey’s shed antlers to create a hunting strategy for the next season. Most shed hunters coming to River Rock Lodge are searching for sheds solely for fun and for a piece of unique Alaskana.

When is the best time to go shed hunting?

Spring is one of the best times for moose and caribou shed hunting in Alaska. Shed hunting trips are popular at River Rock Lodge, so plan ahead and book your shed hunting trip for April or May as soon as you can!

Can you sell moose or caribou antler sheds?

Selling shed antlers is legal in most states, including Alaska. Some states do have strict regulations against the sale of antlers attached to skulls, however.

What do you need to bring when going shed hunting?

You’ll want a good pair of hiking boots and clothing that you won’t be scared to get a little muddy! Remember, spotting your shed is only half the battle – you’ve got to get to it! So be sure to wear clothes that can withstand a good ole Alaskan bushwhack!
