Yeah Antler handles pretty commonplace over here in the UK,a full antler can give you a thumb stick,gun stick and a straight handle.
Nice change from wood. A couple here than I've done recently.

Even though my brother lives on 50 acre wooded property and has seen deer by the dozen he has never found a deer rack/antler in the 13 years of living there.

 

Oh well, I had hopes.

 

Dashed again, I guess.

I love using the Red deer antler, I have even got used to the smell (almost) I would like to try some of the other species of British deer but I don't see many Fallow and the Roe antler I have is too small. N.

I enjoy using whitetail deer antler, which is the most plentiful on east coast of US. Actually had some success using smaller antler point closest to the crown as the post or rod that is fastened into the stick. It usually is 2.5-4 inches into the stick. The thick part of the antler becomes the handle. Nature creates lots of variety and opportunity to be creative. I use marine epoxy and have for all my stick joinery. A picture is worth 1000 words, so I'll try to upload a few shortly. Love this forum!

Thanks folks- my apologies in advance, but can someone explain the process of attaching a picture or refer me to a post that explains the process? I searched but didn't find the info. Likely in front of my nose, as my wife likes to point out!

I upload to photobucket then copy the url from photobucket to here.  I know there are other ways.  This is just what I do.

I'm not sure how to do it straight from my computer or if it's even possible.

If you go to the reply box, then click on 'more reply options', you will be able to find a box that says Browse. Click on browse and then you will be able to go to your files and choose a photo to open. Going back to the reply box, you then click on Attach This File and then post the selection in your reply. It's easy once you start following the directions.
