what youve done to antlers that you dont mount??

9 posts in this topic

this will be fun just to find out what people do with thier antlers if they dont mount them. some people just let them lay around and gather dust but some people do other stuff with them.

I mount every buck that I harvest. I've found dead bucks that the neighbors have killed and put those antlers on plaques on the wall. Shed antlers I am saving to make a chandelier and I made an awesome lamp with a set of antlers from a 140 class ten that was found dead. Oh yeah, gotta have a set for rattlin'.

I use to save all racks.After 15 years I had numerous racks and gave them all to a guy who uses them to make different items.

I know I gave away at least 20 racks that were from 8-12 pointers,with some over 125.My true trophy's are on the wall.

I cut some of my grandpa's up and have them hanging from my Dresser top where there are gaps in the wood work and they hang down.

I had my first buck by bow antlers laying around for about 3/4 years and my Cousin got into taxidermy and did this as practice and a favor.

A lot nicer than two antlers laying around doing nothing!

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
