Shed Antlers

When we spot bones or antlers on the tundra, we tend to take a look at them.  Many are natural, like this shed caribou antler.  Some are still attached to skulls and may come from animals that died of natural causes.  Other times, they are near hunting blinds or caches and we can tell that the belonged to animals that were hunted.  Unless they are clearly from an archaeological context we leave them where we find them.
