Antlers by CindarellaPop Antlers by CindarellaPop
I bought a pair of deer antlers and decorated them with some colored thread, I think they're pretty fuckin' nifty.

I love this. Not knowing anything about antlers and taxidermy, I wasn't sure if the cord was serving a purpose or decorative, I'm so glad it's on purpose because it made me want antlers with thread on them too :giggle:

Is it true the animals just discard their antlers essentially - That they're not dead, like a shell or snakeskin? This takes me back to like, a girl in Kindergarten who brought antlers in to show and tell. I clearly remember them for some reason.

Yep! Deer antlers are naturally shed every year right after the breeding season in late fall. The only exception to this is the caribou, which is also the only deer to have females with antlers. They use theirs to dig for food in the snow.

These ones weren't shed, though, they're attached to a skull plate so this animal has been dead for some time. They came out of an old hunting shed when the owner wanted to clean it out and get rid of it.

I wasn't sure if that was a skull plate or a skullish rock. :lol: That's why I asked. I just remember how the shed antlers were really bloody which freaked all the kids out :lol:

Hahahaha, it's tricky to find shed ones around here because so many animals actually love to eat them. (They're a good source of calcium and every critter loves to chew them.) Occasionally I'll find them underneath trees where the buck rubbed them until they came off. This little fella wasn't much of a trophy buck though so I figure he was hunted for meat.
