Antler buyers.
« on: July 08, 2007, 11:16:57 AM »
Never thought I would want to sell some of my collection, but now I'm considering it.  Anyone know of an antler buyer in the Puget Sound region or Western Wa. or Wa. in general?  Want to sell the whole antler, not just the tines.

I hear ya hunterofelk, I never thought I would be selling any of my bones, but I sold a pair of blacktail sheds to Michelle, and have recently been seen cutting tines off.  OUCH Nice looking calls he makes though, so thats better than just cash, and Michelle gets a great mount for her shop.  That will probably be enough for me for about 10 years.

I've got about 140 lbs of elk antler, a few raghorns, but most six-point or better from average-sized bulls.  I'm moving to a smaller place and I can't store them for very long.  I never thought I would ever sell them, but never say never I guess.  Thanks for the info.

Best offer I've been given is $5.00/lb.  That price is lower than what I got in the early '80's in Montana.  I don't know why some people go to the lengths they do to pick up some sheds at these prices.  I was keeping them for the memories, but now those memories are too much.

What do you have in the way of matching sheds?  I am considering another display for my shop.

Do you have pics of the bigger sets.Are they roosevelts? I've paid good money for nice sets for displays, Let me know what you got. I think I'm about the 3rd or 4th in line . I'll wait my turn.

I have more singles than sets.  I am not the best source for sheds, I just want to make some room since my divorce and moving into an apartment.  I would take the best offer as long as it didn't come out to 5.00 a pound.
