The growth period lasts through the summer months. During this time, the antlers grow with a soft outer shell called "velvet." In the late summer and early fall, the velvet is removed and exposes the hard antler underneath. Later, in the months of January and February, each animals antlers fall off their head. This is the process called "shedding" and is necessary for the animals to be able to grow new antlers throughout the next summer. These "shed" antlers are then left lying on the forest floor, in meadows, creek beds, and on the sides of mountains. Outdoor enthusiasts all over North America lace up their hiking shoes and cover miles of terrain in search of these naturally shed antlers. Once they find them, they can then be sold to be made into dog chews, beads, buttons, furniture, chandeliers and so much more.
