Thread: Use for deer feet

  1. #1

    Use for deer feet

    They can also be used as coat hangers, walking stick handles, or priests (if dried straight)

    Anyone suggest any other uses for them?

    Give them to your dog too. All the hair, bone and sinew is like the perfect 'doggie dental floss'!! Great for their teeth.

    Do you have to do anything to them to get them to stay that way?

    As long as they're held in position as they dry out they can be left completely alone I generally lay them on a board and use nails to hold them in position (but I don't actually nail through them) Once they dry in any position they're completely set

    I once had a knife, think I got it in France and it had a Roe foot handle.

    Yes walking stick handles, have made a few but the hair tends to shed after time, any idea how to prevent it?

    I've never noticed that, but I'd be tempted just to replace the handle. I use double-ended studs to attach mine, so it would be a matter of simply unscrewing the old one & replacing it. I generally have plenty of roe feet lying about though. Maybe some kind of taxidermists solution would prevent the hair slipping?

    I used Formaldehyde, many years ago.

    Two sticks, made twenty+ years ago, using Roe feet for handles, are still fine.

    CH2O is dicey stuff, so would not recommend its use now.
