The bigger ones typically shed them in February or March. The little spikes can keep them much longer. You need to research where they spend their late winter months. Game departments usually have maps available. They will drop their rack wherever they are that time of year. The really big ones often drop both sides in the same area. I have heard stories of them losing one side, then knocking the other side off because they are so out of balance.

Gosh that would be fun to find a big elk shed! They get so big compared to deer sheds.
