Deer sheds

So I found a perfect pair of medium antlers laying out in the open today. About 5 foot apart in the middle of 4 acre lot next to woods. My picture is 2.9MB but will not upload

Are they worth anything? CL? or just give them to a kids to play with? I never had any luck using them to call with when I was a kid, but I tried it all once.

Former boss had several mounts in his showroom. He bought a few very large sheds from a few different people but they were as big as your chest. He paid good money for them but they were rare and never in pairs.

Nice. I found some the other day. Those look to be a few years old to me. Look very sun bleeched. Hard to tell in pics

Tips are white like ivory. Normally I'll find them shroomin in the woods. Been too dry here for that until tonight.

Maybe Izaak Walton will want them.

Those aren't worth a lot they are to small $8-$10 per pound on deer sheds #1 grade
Your sheds looks like #2 or #3 grade
My hobby I build stuff from sheds and carve stuff
Here one I found 89 inches My 3 yr old Grand daughter modeling for me I was offer $150 for it but I don't sell sheds I get more enjoyment building something from them Then sell it
2nd pic is a lamp I did #388 table lamp

Shoot 'em before they can shed 'em.
