Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife


Can I remove a dead deer from my property and keep the antlers?

No. You cannot keep the antlers or horns attached to dead wildlife. This includes dead wildlife found on your property. However, you can keep naturally shed antlers that you find.

You can remove and dispose of wildlife found dead on your property. You must first notify a WDFW Regional Office before you start. You can only remove dead wildlife for disposal, not for personal use or consumption.
