Combing the woods: For archery hunter Haaby, searching for shed antlers is part of an ongoing process

ROSEAU COUNTY, Minn. -- Mitch Haaby is scouring the woods on this perfect May morning trying to find the equivalent of a needle in a haystack.

The needle, in this case, is an antler -- or better yet, a set of antlers -- left behind by a white-tailed buck during the winter, or perhaps even longer ago than that.

The woods, in this case, are considerably larger than a haystack.
