About

How a Deer's Antler Ends up in Your Home.

This shop started as a means of motivating my husband to clear up the pile of antlers he has stacked up in the garage. My husband works as a ranch manager on his families property in North Eastern Utah. There are hundreds of deer and elk on this piece of property. Every spring the bucks and bulls (those deer and elk that have horns) loose their antlers. It's a natural process and by the end of summer their antlers will have grown back bigger and better than before. My husband picks up these fallen antlers during work and brings them home. He is literally addicted to finding antlers.

Antlers are found in three different conditions. First there is the brown antler. The brown antler is one that has been found within a year of falling off the head of the animal. Brown antlers are mostly brown with some white and tan. These antlers also have a little bit of a shine to them. Next there is the hard white antler which has been found within 2-3 years of falling off. Hard white antlers may have a little brown but for the most part they have been bleached by the sun and tiny cracks are beginning to appear. Last of all, there is the chalky antler. These antlers have been exposed to the elements for 3-5 years. Chalky antlers are starting to come apart with tiny white splinter peeling outwards. They are white and sometimes even pink.

Antlers are beautiful and interesting. It's not hard to see why my husband loves picking them up. I hope you will appreciate their unique beauty as much as he does.
