Can anyone explan how Antelope horns grow? I know that they kind of shed them every year but do they come back like deer or elk? Do they come back bigger, smaller, the same or do they change every year.
Generally they will, but in a bad dry year they may not gain anything compared to the previous year. To prepare antelope horns for mounting you actually boil the horns until the outer black sheath comes off. Then that is cleaned out thoroughly before slipping it onto the mold that resembles the bone from the actal live animal head and bonding it in place before the tanned hide is put on.
In the spring of 2007 I was the unfortunate recipient of an injury cause by a damaged carbon arrow that shattered on release of the arrow. I was in the yard going to take a few practice shots before dinner and the second arrow is the one that did the damage. That day will forever be burned in my mind. After I release what happened I made mistake #2 I pulled the tail shaft of the arrow out of my hand causing more damage.
Thank goodness that my wife was home and was able to...
