SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources is reminding Utahns they need to take a free online ethics course before gathering shed antlers.

The free course can be found at wildlife.utah.gov/shedantler.

In a tweet, the division said once the course has been completed, gatherers should print out a completion certificate and carry it with them while participating in the popular pastime, which is allowed between now and April 15.

Those who wait until April 15 or later to gather antlers don't need to complete the course.

In a separate tweet, the division warned a post circulating on Facebook saying there is a statewide closure on antler gathering is a fake.
