Wyoming Family Captures Huge Bull Moose Shedding an Antler on Camera

A massive bull moose surprises this family when its antler falls off in front of them!

Seeing a deer, elk or moose shed an antler is a pretty rare event. Most hunters have never been privileged enough to witness such a rare event.

So it’s even rarer when someone catches an animal shedding on camera. But a family in Wyoming was fortunate enough to capture a video of a massive bull moose dropping an antler that you’ll have to see to believe!

The very surprised people you hear in the background are the Eberhart family. And it may surprise you to learn they caught this video the week after Thanksgiving, a time that is really early for any antlered animal to be shedding. Contrary to what the people in the video say, the antler falling off was likely more of a relief than painful.

“The moose shook his head and his paddle fell off right in front of us!” Kim Eberhart told National Geographic.

I don’t know about you, but as a shed hunter, this video is what I’d call a dream come true. Why can’t this ever happen in front of me?
