asked a few of the older stalkers i know how deer antlers colour up after the velvet comes off and i've been getting a variety of answers. I always thought they coloured up by rubbing on the trees but after spending a whole afternoon rubbing and rubbing and rubbing some more to try and colour up a head i shot in velvet (starting to clear) with no colour change what so ever???
Another head i shot in velvet, i stripped the velvet off (again staring to clear) and i cut the antler in half to reveal the inside of the antler was like an aero all full of bubbles - when would these harden up or will some antlers just remain more porus than others???
