To start I did not find this shed ! My dad noticed this shed on the outside of my uncles barn and asked if he could have it to give to me (he knows what an antler fanatic I am). My uncle said yes and he suprized me with it.
There is a sad part to this story though. My uncle actually picked up the both sides of this awesome buck about 8 years ago while archery elk hunting. He is one of those guys that makes knife handles and belt buckles with antlers and I have given him quite a few antlers over years for his projects, but I had no clue he had his hands on some sheds like this. So he actually cut the bur's off both antlers and then realized what he had. He tried putting the antler I have back together again, but could not do it the way he was doing it, and let another guy take the antler to a shop to put it back together. Well that antler never returned ! They stole it !
