    Antlers....and what to do with them

    Some of you might recall previous threads where I've been looking for uses for old antler.

    Well, a week or so ago my stalking mentor passed me two ammo boxes full of old roe and muntjac antlers.

    I decided to have a session making key rings and zip pulls and this is the result:



    The muntjac antler at about 1 o'clock measures just under 12.5cm, or 5 inches in old money. As a key ring you could do yourself a mischief with it if you're not careful, but I know people who'd give their hind teeth to shoot a muntjac with antlers like those. Still, better a key ring than sitting in a shed.

    Now waiting on delivery of some split rings to finish them off.

    I hadn't thought of that. Do you know if there's a design anywhere that I could have a look at?

    They weren't, but following 243varmint's suggestion below I may well take them to Bisley next weekend and try to raise some funds for H4H.

    Many thanks

    I will need to have a think about how to make the reed. I have one of the Rottumtaler calls (Rehblatter Typ 1 - Rottumtaler Wildlocker) so can examine that in more detail.
