But just because you can sell doesn't mean anyone is allowed to buy them.

I have a bunch of sheds that I pick up every Spring, but I know guys who have tons. I try to craft out of them as best I can, here is my lastest creation LOL!
If you ever come at our camp, you will have to press the doorbell before you may enter!
I don't see how an antlers lying on the ground is part of an animal that was harvested in NB under the Fish and Wildlife Act, but I can see why DNR wants to use the provision of the Act to stop abuse of the buying and selling of parts of animals, as some of these are not sheds, but sawed off antlers from illegal activity maybe? Don't have the answer...

Nice! I'm still waiting to hear back. I was told yesterday that they will probably be changing the regs but didn't say if it would get better or worse.

I just got off the phone with Rick Nash (manager) and Shawn Carl (his right hand man). It is illegal to sell antlers and antler carving/crafts. It is not illegal for someone to hire a taxidermist to do the carving for them. It is not the answer I wanted to hear but it was very refreshing to hear an answer. So, going forward, I will do carvings and crafts for people on sheds that they own. If we want the reg to change, we need to petition the Minister.

These laws were made when every one was considered a bandit and in todays enviroment actually are not needed.
Actually, everyone in NB is still considered a bandit, which is why we have all the laws we have as compared to our other Canadian provinces.

Wow. 146 would be some pile of antler dust when I got done carving them up... The thing here is we are the ones that would need to lobby for a change. If what I was doing was harming animals, I wouldn't do it. I don't need a law for me to do what's right. I'd just like to be able to make a bit of fun money to spend in NB by doing what I enjoy and by giving people something that they could keep and maybe be proud of other than a pile of sheds. For now, I'm just carving what I have for my own enjoyment and offering to carve peoples sheds for them.

It because of guys like the one with the 146 racks that you won't see the law change anytime soon.

FYI, that trailer was full of sheds the guy had picked up himself... I think there was one full intact rack with the skull plate and it looked like a die-off or pick-up, the rest were all sheds.
