Deer sheds

I was recently told by a kansas Game warden that it was illegal to find and keep deer sheds, and he could fine me for each shed he finds if he were to come to my house, is this true or was the game warden just being mean? I've looked everywhere on the net to see if its true but found nothing. I'm hoping this is false

I would not think so either. I would think they would be fair taking for anyone that came across one.

Use a 12 Gauge - It covers more area!

i dont know .in new york if your on public land you cant take anything from the woods .flowers rocks etc.they think your upsetting the ecosystem.on your own land its a free for maybe he was talking bout pulic land.Dont take my word for it.I would call the dec office and aask them.Best to go straight to the source,after all they would be the one handing out the tickets

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
