    Default Helicopters and sheds

    Is it legal to retrieve antler sheds with a helicopter? Where can one find these regs?

    Why wouldn't it be? It's only illegal to harvest game with the use of one.

    I don't know either, but I do know I used to see a lot of sheds from the air when I used to work out of Iliamna. There were plenty I would have liked to pick up, but alas, the politics involved in the project did not allow for such tomfoolery.

    I will tell you though that a big set of moose sheds is tough to fit in a jet ranger. One in the cheek pod, and one wedged in the in the backseat, and you can get a matched set of 60" sheds back to Birchwood

    The key there is to hover just above the refuge, don't actually land...

    It is NOT the landing, they can NOT be removed from the refuse.

    Actually it is the landing, it requires a permit, don't ask me how I know...

    I had the conversation about shed hunting on the refuge with someone else a while back. I thought I had read you could, i guess I'm glad I've never found any!
