Wordless Wednesday: Huge Antler

See the velvet on the antlers of this elk?
That big elk, or one like him, dropped this before growing new ones.

The superstar nose found it.

Shyla's Trophy.

  1. Holy cow! I wonder what that feels like for them to drop those antlers like that?

  4. We are gradually bringing it home. It feels like it's about 10 lbs and it's 4' long with prongs sticking out from it. So, I moved it a half mile toward home today. Another half mile tomorrow and for three days after that, and then it'll be home! Shyla can't even lift it. She can drag it a short distance but that's it.

    But, we will leave it outside our house because rodents really need the nutrients they get when gnawing on an antler.

  5. That's pretty awesome! I saw some antler treats at the pet store and was shocked at the price. Pretty cool that you found such an impressive one just lying around!

  9. I was just telling DK how I wish Beamer would be able to find his own antler. It would save me a lot of moola! Haha.

    It's nice of you to leave the antler out for the rodents to share with your pups.
