Spring is the time to hunt for shed antlers
To the casual passerby, it would appear that Joe Shead might be disoriented. Or, perhaps that he has lost his car keys and is trying to track them down.
He moves deliberately across the snowy Duluth hillside, head down, eyes searching.
Shead, who lives in Superior, is looking for antlers. Like a growing number of Northland residents, he's a "shed" antler hunter. He's a collector of antlers that whitetail bucks shed naturally this time of year.
