In Oklahoma it is illegal to be in possession of antlers without a tag I believe. It is also illegal to pick up roadkill without permission from a warden or tagging it.

That is what I believe the law is here in PA.

Who picks up the deer and what do THEY do with the antlers ?

Most are probably after the rack for rattling/bragging and don't have a saw to cut them off. Probably just have a knife and that's the only way to get them.

Sorry, but I just don't know why anyone would want to add a rack to their collection when they didn't kill it themselves. I would love to have a nice wallhangar, but till I'm able to bring that big buck down myself it will just have to be a dream.

Why would you pick up a shed antler if you happened to come across it while walking a ur dog. Well you would have to leave it then you don't want it in your collection cause you didnt shoot it. PLEEEEAAAASEEEEE!

they make good knife handles, zipper pullers. you can also use them to repair broken antlers. many different reasons. i carry a saw in the truck just in case.

That just seems wrong to me. I'm an avid hunter and I have plenty of spare antlers - I guess I'm not interested in antlers that I didn't work for.
