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!

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
