    Re: antler carvings

    my son bought a house a few months ago, in the garage a deer antler rack hung on the wall so he gave it to me to make pens. the medal tag was still on it, said 1924 wisconson. I don't think I will cut them up for pens to old.

    Re: antler carvings

    Nice work!!! In Ontario, it's against the law to sell ANY part of a game animal..
    Even selling a knife with a horn handle can get you fined big time, so theres no way anyone regardless of talent can sell what he or she carves,you just have to keep piling them up, and pass them on when you go...

    Re: antler carvings

    Deer Elk Moose shed annually their antlers annually. Most of the time you will find both sheds within about 300 yards. . Most bucks shed both antlers the same day. If the bucks don?t get chased or spooked, the second shed will not be far. It also depends upon bucks feeding and water patterns. The farther that buck travels to and from feed and water, the farther apart the sheds can be.

    The best place to find sheds is simple. You have to watch the deer at shedding time. If you know where a buck is before opening morning, the better the chance you will get him. If you are watching a buck at shedding time, the sheds will be much simpler to find. Bucks start shedding in January in the northern states. The farther that you go South the later bucks will begin shedding. In Old Mexico bucks don?t start shedding until March.

    Younger bucks and bulls usually will shed last.
    Antlers usually drop when the deer are moving. Look around fence lines and gulches- jumping and bounding will jar the antlers loose.
    If you find a single side, start searching in a 100 yard radius. This usually will give you enough area to find the other side.
    Keep a log of time and dates for specific deer. Deer will usually drop about the same time each year.
    Sheds that you find will give you a good idea of what caliber of bucks are in the area and what survived last falls hunts.
    Practice ethical shed collecting when out on the winter range- do not push or put unnecessary pressure on the animals. This will lead to an early death while the deer and elk are trying to survive the winter.

    yep, she said it best. I started out by picking them up in the spring. However..since I seem to be using alot lately, I order them from deer farms.
