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

Anyone suggest any other uses for them?

As long as they're held in position as they dry out they can be left completely alone :thumb: 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'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? :???:

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

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.

A friend of mine at work had a Chinese father-in-law that had deer feet off me for the tendons within. They are used in chinese cooking and medicine.

I've also supplied them to a local wildlife trust for educating the kids. They used to search the woods for ages looking for suitable deer slots in suitable mud to take plaster casts of. That was until I got some Muntjac, Roe and Fallow feet sets dried into a natural standing position and mounted inside some rather decorative chromed tube handles. A quick trip around the wood before the kids arrive and 'Hey Presto', some perfect deer slots in some perfect muddy places!:lol:

There is a market for the tendons in Red deer feet, many pro. Stalkers sell them along with pizzels and tails , tendons need to by stripped from the foot leaving the two rear cleats on so that they can be identified as belonging
to deer, sold by the kilo,.

These biproducts were the stalkers perks and usually frozen and sold at the end of the season, tendons were packed into a 250 cartridge box so that they froze into a solid block.
stakers perks
Cast antler or any antler not required by client
Pluck
Tusks ( no market at present time)
Pizzle
Tail
Could all add up.to a tidy sum at the end of the season.
