    Awhile back @Foot Patrol had asked me about some elk antler.
    I found this one while out fencing. It's last years and is a lot of white with a bit of brown. It is real solid and not chalky at all, with a small crack in one of the top tines.
    Tell me what you think.

    Also, what do you want for me to come take that pesky bull elk off your property for ruining your fences come this fall? ;)

    I guess I should have put a price on it....DUH! I'm thinking $40+shipping is fair. I'm sure after being cut up it will fit in a MFRB.
    Just guessing, I'd say it has 4 knife handle blanks and 4 pens blanks in the tines alone and maybe 3 call blanks in the main beam.

    I didn't even get a bull tag this year, but I figured out what I'm going to do.
    I'm going to go right on ahead and shoot a bull, then fix a skirt onto it and some lipstick and tell anyone curious that identifies as a cow elk!:rofl::rofl:
    Just think what I could sell that meat for? Heck, I'd bet some vegans cross back over?:sofa:

    If you come up with any more I'd take a deal like that.

    Cool, I'll need your shipping address unless you still have the Covebrook address?
    I also need to know how you'd like it cut up? I generally cut just as close to the main beam as I can taking the tines off, then get the longest "knot free" pieces from the main beam that I can.

    This is the only thing I have right now, but it's chalky do to being several years old.
    I will be out fencing more in the next few weeks, but there is no guarantee what I will find.

    How about $80 plus shipping.
    It's kind of a catch 22 deal on this one because it's worth $100 or better any day for yard art, but just a big huge PITA to ship whole and I won't do it.
    Chopped up I'd bet it's going to fill a couple USPS boxes or a bigger box from UPS.

    You are very welcome.
    I was in a hurry, so the peanuts weren't much.
