These are the year’s best stories, videos, and more from the world of shed hunting.
We’re wrapping up 2017 by sharing some of the best and most-viewed posts, videos, and stories from 2017 and including them in our Wide Open Spaces 12 Days of Top Stories countdown.
This round, we’re looking at six of the coolest shed hunting stories we remembered as we looked back to January of 2017. Check them out!
1. Shed Christmas Tree
This clip came across our news desk this year, and though it’s a little old, it’s still awesome and new to us.
Merry Christmas Everyone!Here is this year's shed antler tree. We weren't going to film it this year, but had a lot of people asking about it so we decided to film it last minute. **Reminder; NO animals were harmed to make this tree, they are all naturally shed antlers including the sheds mounted on a plastic skull topping the tree.

2. From the Horse’s Back
This was easily one of the craziest shed-related stories we’ve ever ran on Wide Open Spaces.
Here's the video of us removing the antler. Again, this horse has been sedated, & a local anesthetic was administered around the entry wound. 2 small skin incisions were made at the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock to help "loosen", & allow easier removal. Once removed, the wound was irrigated with a dilute cholorhexidine solution, then plugged with an antibiotic/DMSO impregnated tampon. Hey,it works!!! Enjoy the video.

3. Restricted Shed Hunting
When news came about that some states were restricting, or even banning, shed hunting, we covered it closely.
4. Better News
There was, on the other hand, a few good stories that came on the same front. Good for shed hunters, at least.
5. Antler Man
2017 was the year we met the Antler Man, and we wont soon forget him.
6. HUSHIN Crew and Shed Hunting Dreams
Finally, we had to close with a clip from the HUSHIN YouTube crew’s #SHEDTOUR, which made us all incredibly jealous.
That does it for this recap list of the 10 best shed hunting stories we gathered all year.
Be sure to keep checking back daily as we continue our countdown of the 12 Top Stories of 2017.
