Ingenious  and good looking!

Yes sir, just about all of mine are from deer antlers. Just something about them that just makes one feel a bit more authentic. :yessir:

I guess we think much alike when it comes to deer antler.  I lost all my usuable antlers - not the mounted trophies - in our last move so have had to turn to other materials.  I guess I have a basket full of home made measures made from antler, wood, river cane and old cartridge cases I've found.  I'll show a few of them.
