You are a unique breed of dedicated hunters. Everyone loves a killer set of antlers, but few are willing to face the elements and put on the miles to get their hands on them. Why do you scavenge the desert hills and patrol the mountainsides for hours on end only for lowly old sheds? Is there more to it than just the antler, or is it really all about the brown gold?
Tell the story of the shed hunter with one image. Capture what drives you to do it. Creatively illustrate your obsession. We expect more than your run-of-the-mill picture of sheds. Go above and beyond to share your story and justify your crazy addiction.
