Antlered game are subject to movement restrictions that require brain etc. are removed prior to bringing the skull in state. Skulls that don't meet state transport laws will not be allowed in shop until they are in compliance.
If local, skinning and caping can be done in shop. Note that different units in Minnesota have different transport restrictions due to CWD.
