    An alternative to a antler top on my stick

    Hi Lads.

    i have had a stick sat in a steel pipe to keep it straight ready to be fitted with a nice bit of antler,

    but as i never keep the antlers (doh) and i have not got on the buck trail this year yet, and the land owner wants them anyway,

    what could i use instead, not looking for a bent bit of steel, i would like something nice on top of my brass, black and white stick top spacers.

    any ideas.

    thanks

    bob.

    If you want a piece of antler ive probably got something to suit you can have (free) how about a fallow brow tine?

    Buffalo horn looks good when polished up. Can I ask why the stick is in a steel tube? They are so easily straightened once dry with a vice and a kettle.

    As well as antler (I have what seems like a garage full of red antlers if you need something) you could also use a nice piece of wood. I have several pre-shaped stick handles in the garage.

    As Baguio says, polished horn looks good, though of course if the stick you have is blackthorn then it's hard to beat a simple knob stick (ooh-err missus).
