What antler is this ?

Recommended Posts

I had a piece of that once and can't find more either. One person told me it might be Sika deer, but I am not sure.

Looks like a chunk of elk that I used to have.
And to acknowledge Alan's comment.
Sika dear are tiny elk so that is very possible.

I'm not by any means a expert, and have no experience with horns outside of bulls and deer. But, I have seen a number of even white tail horns taken by family and friends that have that ratty nubby look on them. We always call them scrub Buck. Usually they are little guys that get pushed out and never really rub all the vevlt off to "smooth" the antlers down. Heck I've even seen a white tail that it's horns looked like they we're stained a redish color. We figured he just must of only spent time rubbing in the thick pine strip job areas we have. If I wouldn't of seen that Buck in person that day. I would of argued someone stained it.

I'm with Gavin, I have a set of White tail antlers that have large nodes as well.

Where was it found or harvested?

 

That'll narrow it down a lot.

Switzerland has Red Deer and judging by the tine pictured that might be it!
