Hi all a couple of years ago i shot a nice fallow buck still in velvet. I boiled the head out and peeled as much of the velvet off as possible. I have finally got round to sorting the antlers but they are a very odd colour. The palms are pinkish and there is a fair amount of black spots / patches. I would like to get the antlers at least a paler colour to then stain them but the odd colour seems to be in the antler rather than on the outside. Any ideas gratefully received.
