Elk shed

An elk antler shed waits untouched in the Gros Ventre Range in 2017 before being legally picked up. A Jackson Hole man is in Teton County Jail for having disregarded the antler hunting rules twice in three years.

It was in broad daylight an entire month before the legal antler-gathering season started when Jackson Game Warden Kyle Lash learned about a man who was wandering around the agency’s South Park Wildlife Habitat Management Area.

The man, Jackson Hole resident Jeramey Hutchison, was infringing on closed wildlife winter range but said he was just taking pictures and was ignorant of the rules. Lash told him he could prove if he was lying, and the story shifted.
