    ANTLERS WANTED

    hello all

    i am after any antlers that might be going spare to help a young lad (Richard) who makes walking sticks in his spare time to help support /fund himself through college.

    ever since i have known Richard he would be in the woods tieing/wiring branches, he would show you even as a kid where in 1,2,4 ,5or more years time a good walking stick could be fashioned from a branch.

    anyway this lad is putting himself through college and makes walking sticks in spare time to get extra money. He has all my antlers but as i only shoot for the table and most of thoses are younger beasts the antlers are not that good. also Richard tells me the antlers need 12-18 mths to dry out first.

    if there is anybody that has any spare antlers in the atic or shed 12 mths old or more and want to donate them to a good cause Richard would love to have them .

    i will pay any postage for the antlers so you are not out of pocket , i have had a walking stick from him with an antler mount from one i gave him 2-3 yrs back i must say it is a fantastic example of what he can do and i will recommend his sticks to anybody who is after one .
    this lad is not a commercial venture he is a lad putting himself through school trying to make ends meet doing something he loves.

    if it is ok with admin i will try and post pics of my stick and others he has done.

    PM me or email griffshrek1@aol.com if you have any and how much the postage would be and i'll ge the money to you for the postage .


    regards.................neil

    I haven`t got any antlers but fair play to the lad for getting off his arse and helping his own cause. The country needs more like him.

    Whereabouts are you/Richard based? I've got some red deer antlers but don't fancy wrapping them using brown paper and string!

    Fleebay sometimes has a few up for auction and they seem to go for reasonable money. May be worth a few quids investment for a greater return once the sticks are made?
